PUSPAKOM TO COMPLETE TAXI METERS INSPECTION BEFORE DUE DATE
KUALA LUMPUR, — Puspakom, the computerized vehicle inspection centre, is confident it will be able to complete inspection of taxi meters three months ahead of the January 1, 2010 deadline.
Its Chief Operations Officer, Raja Mahmud Al Haj Raja Dato Ibrahim, said as at Aug 1,2009 Puspakom had inspected 82 per cent or 22,450 taxi meters.
Taxis which modified their meters were allowed to charge extra fare effective from that date.
Puspakom said in a statement that inspection of taxi meters were being carried out at all branches except in Sabah, Sarawak and Pulau Pinang.
“Inspection of taxi meters in Negeri Sembilan has been completed while the remainder of the taxis in the Klang Valley and Johor will be inspected before October 2009.
“Infact, we can complete the entire inspection within 10 days if the taxis owners bring in their vehicles to Puspakom’s branches in the Klang Valley and Johor Bharu,” he added.
Raja Mahmud said Puspakom only charged RM10 to inspect a taxi meter and operated its centers daily and, during the fasting months, between 8am and 9pm, and up to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, to speed up the inspection exercise.
He explained that all Puspakom centres in the Klang Valley were well equipped to carry out the inspection.
