ASTANA. KAZINFORM – Car owners from new regions have begun to receive numbers with their own region code, Kazinform reports with reference to Polisia.kz.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs has started registration of vehicles in the Abay, Zhetysu and Ulytau regions with the assignment of its own region code on state license plates. From today, when registering a car, residents of these regions began to issue numbers with new region codes.
As previously reported, state registration plates in the Abay region have a digital designation of the region code – 18, in the Zhetysu region – 19 and in the Ulytau region – 20.
Given the extraterritorial principle of providing services in the field of road traffic, residents of new regions will be able to register their cars in any special PSC in the country. At the same time, citizens do not need to replace old state license plates with the old digital designations of the regions with new ones.
“From September, for the convenience of citizens, all applications at public service centers for the production of high-demand numbers will be tied to their IINs (or BINs for legal entities) and paid receipts. This will eliminate the risks when several applications are submitted for the same number in different regions, and citizens have questions about the priority of issuing them to any person. In addition, this will reduce corruption risks, as PSCs will no longer order prestigious rooms “for the future”, but only on individual orders of citizens,” the department noted.
