PIA Press Release

LTO Ifugao awaits guidelines on RFID fees

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lamut, Ifugao (23 January) -- The Land Transportation Office (LTO) here has issued Radio Frequency Identification Card (RFID) to 62 vehicles and is now awaiting guidelines on how to reimburse the amount collected following the Supreme Court order stopping the issuance of RFID to drivers and operators.

Engr. Erick Kimayong, the Chief of the LTO here said that from January 4 13, their office issued 62 RFID to vehicles who came to register or renew their registration. We stopped issuing RFID only when we received a directive from our Central Office informing us to stop issuing such," he said.

Kimayong said that the issuance of RFID is being implemented by STRATCOM who was in charge of upgrading the computerization of LTO. The RFID he said aims to monitor vehicles which are unregistered or operating illegally. Its is also is one way of knowing the details of the vehicles, he added.

Kimayong said the RFID is not much effective here since this is a small province and we know almost all the owners and their vehicles thus there is no need to implement the RFID.

A fee of P350.00 was collected from every owner upon registration or renewal of their vehicle's registration. With the directive stopping them from collecting the RFID Kimayong said that they will wait for the guidelines on how to reimburse the said amount to those who paid it already. He said they remitted the collected amount to the account of STRATCOM. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
