KUWAIT CITY, Oct 25: The transactions of citizens in various sections of the General Traffic Department (GTD) at the Ministry of Interior can now be completed within a few minutes; as the department issued a circular on the allocation of paths and counters for the quick completion of transactions, reports Al-Rai daily. This is in compliance with the instruction of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled to ease procedures for citizens who expressed satisfaction over such move.

On Monday morning, the daily’s staff visited the Capital Traffic Department building; during which they observed commitment to the circular in all sections — technical inspection of cars, driving licenses, payment of fines, coordination and follow up.

A number of citizens praised this development, stressing it will greatly contribute to the immediate completion of transactions that require personal attendance, and relieve them of the torment of crowding and waiting in long queues. They consider this a step in the right direction, especially since GTD is the main artery of the ministry and its one of the important sectors serving a large number of citizens and expatriates. They expressed gratitude to the ministry, while hoping this will be implemented in other government agencies.

This came after Director General of GTD Major General Yousef Al-Khadda issued a circular for all traffic departments to establish special lanes and counters to expedite the completion of transactions. He affirmed this is in compliance with the directive of the minister to remove all obstacles that citizens used to face in the processing of their transactions. GTD previously allocated a special section for people with special needs through which they can complete their transactions while inside their vehicles; in addition to activating electronic services for online completion of transactions through the ‘Sahel’ and ‘My Identity’ applications.
