‘Farwaniya’ receiving citizens, residents for transactions
KUWAIT CITY, July 7: The discontinuation of the ‘barcode’ has led to the rush of visitors in front of the General Traffic Department in the Capital governorate, while the GTD employees exerted great efforts to complete the transactions as much as possible, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
A security source said that the General Traffic Department (GTD) was receiving visitors according to the barcode (appointment booking system) but that the discontinuation of the system, led to the presence of large numbers of visitors at the administration building which prompted the employees who work with an estimated capacity of 30 percent based on the decisions of the Council of Ministers to receive few visitors and complete their transactions.
The source said the Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Traffic Affairs Major-General Jamal Al-Sayegh has been requested to initiate the barcode system sensing the necessity of the system to relieve the pressure on the employees.
The Farwaniya Traffic Department continues to receive citizens and residents to complete their transactions in compliance with health requirements and social distancing as mandated by the Ministry of Health and the decisions issued by the Council of Ministers, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
The administration has started issuing car registration documents in addition to completing the vehicle transfers for individuals and companies, and receiving traffic fines.
The work process was supervised by Colonel Khalid Al-Khaldi, Director of Farwaniya Traffic Department, who has said priority will be given to the people with disabilities and the elderly. In the meantime the General Traffic Department (GTD) in all governorates started receiving citizens and residents from last Tuesday as per the online booking system.
