Abu Dhabi police plans e-linking with banks, car firms
Abu Dhabi, February 8, 2014
Abu Dhabi Police said its vehicles and drivers licensing department will achieve electronic linking with banks and new car showrooms by the end of the year.
“The electronic linking with banks will provide data regarding vehicles’ mortgages when individuals apply for vehicle licensing services that require a mortgage release, or a no objection certificate from the bank," stated Colonel Suhail Al Khaili, the chief of the Vehicles Licensing Section.
"It will also provide electronic sales contracts and applications from car agencies and showrooms, including the necessary data, to save citizens and residents time and effort," he pointed out.
Colonel Al Khaili noted that this measure was part of the comprehensive integrated linking project that was achieved with insurance companies, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s inspection centers (Adnoc), the Customs Authority, the Residency and Ports, and the Emirates Transport Company’s inspection centers.
“The linking process allows for assessment to determine liability in case of faulty transactions," he noted.
“Linking with the customs administrations allows online handling of imported vehicles’ data, streamlines licensing procedures, and prevents errors. It also allows both parties to communicate electronically, and issue licenses, by inserting vehicle data, paper-free,” he explained, noting that vehicles’ related data appear automatically when registration procedures are initiated.
With this a single transaction at any of the 48 service centers across Abu Dhabi will take less than 5 minutes, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
