P1.3 billion first quarter collection bolsters LTO capabilities

0

Despite controversies, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) had boasted a whooping P1.3 billion in collections for this year’s first quarter.

This was recorded only at the LTO-NCR (Nation Capital Region) according to Director Atty. Emilio Bantog who said that, the collection derived from the agency’s required fees was seven percent higher than last year’s revenues.

The P1.370 billion collection, Bantog said surpassed the P1.361-billion collected last year for the same period.

LTO chair Assistant Secretary Virgie Torres told The Manila Times that the agency is set to improve its quality standard operation in public service.


The LTO-NCR besides the high collection she said will also implement this year the Anti-Red Tape (ARTA) mandated by the Republic Act 9485 and the Civil Service Commission (CSC).

She added that seminars conducted by CSC to the agency’s Regional District Directors (RDs) and Assistant Regional Directors (ARDs) in March will lead to its full implementation the next quarter.

Torres explained that ARTA is equivalent to the popular International Standardization Organizations that gave accreditation to corporate private companies that reached highest quality, safety and public services level to their clients.

As to the shortage in security stickers and plate numbers, Torres said the agency is now in the process of correcting deficiencies to normalize the demand and make the contractors adhere to their policy.

All RDs, ARDs and district heads of the agency are expecting that by July the public bidding conducted by the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) will determine which bidders won the contract to make new plate numbers under Plates Stan­dardi­zation Program, which has been delayed for a number years.

Bantog on the other-end stressed that all district offices of LTO-NCR will also have designated Public Assistant Desk to assist their clients as front liners to address the needs of the public seeking driver’s license or vehicle renewal registration.

Meanwhile, the nearby Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board has also been instructed by the DOTC to beef up its campaign against illegal or “colorum” buses and other public utility vehicles.

DOTC has tasked the agency to use advance technology like Radio Frequency Iden­tification, Global Positioning System and Smart Cards.
