KUALA LUMPUR: A new computer system will be installed at the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to deal with its increasing workload. 

Transport Minister Datuk Chan Kong Choy said the present system used by the JPJ was more than 10 years old and becoming obsolete. 

“It is in desperate need of replacement because it cannot cope with the workload the JPJ is doing,” he said after opening the 25th annual general meeting of the Federation of Motor and Credit Companies Associations of Malaysia (FMCCAM) at Hotel Melia here yesterday. 

“The number of motorised vehicles on the road has also increased to almost double, from 6.2 million in 1992 to 12 million in 2002,” he added. 

Chan said the Government was assessing the cost of upgrading the computer system at all JPJ offices in the country. 

He said the ministry had submitted an application to the Chief Secretary of the Government and had received a favourable reply. 

“The cost (of upgrading) will be substantial but it will be implemented in stages,” he said. 

He said people would be able to deal with the JPJ more regularly through the Internet when the upgrading process is completed.
