In a move to adopt new technology as preferred by the modern youth and to avoid the inconvenience and burden of carrying physical money, all customers of the Department of Motor Traffic (DMT) will be facilitated to make their payments via electronic cards including credit cards, said Commissioner of Motor Transport (Development) D. Kusalani, attending the briefing held on the new e-payment facilities introduced to the RMV at the Department of Government Information Auditorium yesterday (05).
By doing so, the DMT customers will be able to make their payments even if they do not possess cash at hand, she pointed out.
The DMT as a major public institution that emits revenue for the Treasury produces about Rs. 01 billion monthly and due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the drop in vehicle imports, the income has declined recently, but now is recovering.
The briefing was attended by Commissioner of Motor Traffic (Control) Susantha Jayathilake, Accountant Aravinda Samarakoon and other officials.
