The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has collected RM4.23 billion in revenue for last year, the bulk of which was from road tax renewals, said transport minister Anthony Loke. According to The Star, Loke said that road tax renewals accounted for 69% of the amount, an increase of 3.32% when compared to the revenue collected in 2017.

“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate all JPJ officers for their hard work over the years,” he said during his speech at the 73rd JPJ Day celebration recently. Loke also said JPJ was now among the top four departments with the highest revenue collected, besides the Customs Department, Inland Revenue Board and Immigration Department.

“In order to maintain quality service for the people, JPJ must ensure that its services always exceed the people’s expectations,” he noted, adding that “they must be fast in taking action, have flexible policies as well as provide the best services by using the latest technology.” Loke said the JPJ aims to collect RM4.3 billion in revenue this year.
