Metropolitan Group gets e-motoring programme tender
Investment Promotion State Minister Dilum Amunugama told Parliament yesterday that the Metropolitan Group will carry out the project to digitise the automobile industry as per the new e-motoring programme including the online registration of vehicles.
The State Minister said this while answering the question raised by SLPP MP Wasantha Yapa Bandara regarding the printing of driver’s licences.
Amunugama said that the e-motoring programme was started during his tenure as State Transport Minister, and the Metropolitan Company had no corrupt dealings in this regard and the agreement signed with it for a period of five years had ended.
The State Minister said that this agreement had been renewed every two years and every five years during the 15 years of its period.However, according to the procurement method, it was a serious mistake.
The printing of driver’s licences has now been stopped and tenders cannot be called for it. He also stated that this project was recently given to the Signal Corps of the Sri Lanka Army. He said that although this project was given to the Army, the Army took the relevant machines from the Metropolitan Company and carried out this work until tenders were called.
