How to get Smart Vehicle Identification Card?

After successful launch of Smart CNIC, chip based smart Vehicle Identification Card has just been introduced. These cards will takeover the existing vehicle registration books. This initiative has also been launched in collaboration with NADRA. It will not only good for the owner but also very helpful for law enforcing agencies.
Vehicle Identification Card
Excise and Taxation Department of Pakistan has started issuance of vehicle identification cards from 16 October, 2015. This credit card size card contains details about vehicle and its owner including; owner name, CNIC No., address, date of registration, chassis no., engine no.,  type of body, color, seating capacity, CC power, fitness examination validity, tax information and much more. All data is also stored in machine readable chip.
This new system will help to overcome the problem of stolen vehicles with fake or tempered registration books as duplication of this new smart card is impossible due to its security features.
In case the card is lost, it will be blocked immediately upon the owner complaint and a new card will be issued to the owner.
I think it will be a golden chance for those people whose car is devalued or facing problem to sell it as they have not original book and have a duplicate copy. They may be able to issue new card after depositing old duplicate registration copy and applicable fee.
Currently about 850,000 vehicles are registered with the excise department of Islamabad.

How to get Vehicle Identification Card and its Fee?

Excise and Taxation Department is issuing Vehicle Identification Cards for new vehicles at a cost of PKR 1450. 
Registration books of old vehicles can also be converted into this new card on request of the owner and upon paying the same fee as mentioned above.
Buyer of a used vehicle will also get this new card instead of traditional registration book.

10 Best Special Forces of the World including SSG Pakistan

Special forces are highly trained military units to perform special and unconventional tasks. Wonderfulengineering.com has recently published a video report titled "10 Best Special Forces of the World" on it Facebook page. Below is the list of these Top-10 Special Forces:

10. Australian SASR
9. SSG Pakistan
8. Unidad de Operaciones Especiales Spain
7. Alpha Group Russia
6. National Gendarmerie Intervention Group France
5. Sayeret Matkal Israel
4. Special Boat Service United Kingdom
3. Navy Seal United States
2. Army's Delta Force United States
1. The British SAS

SSG (Special Services Group) of Pakistan is also included in this list and ranked at 9th positions. It is an honor for Pakistan that such unbiased international organizations always included Pakistani commandos in worlds best special forces. In fact, SSG Pakistan is always in the best special forces; no matter what is the criteria and who is preparing the list. Pakistan may be at number 1 or at number 10, but they cannot be ignored while preparing such lists. Even enemies of Pakistan acknowledged the bravery, courage, skills, professionalism and patriotism of Pakistani soldiers in the field. Earlier this year, "Business Insider Australia" ranked SSG on 1st position. 

SSG was created in 1956. It is also known as Black Storks and Maroon Berets. Its headquarter is in Tarbela. Its total strength is about 7,000 brave men serving in 10 battalions. It has completed several successful missions in Pakistan and abroad; during peace or war. SSG commandos cut their thumb to stamp the oath form with their blood.

Another interesting thing is that India is nowhere in the list.

PIA ranked 4th in Worst National Airlines

In a two minute video by wonderfulengineering.com on its Facebook page, list of 5 worst national airlines was shared. In this video, possible reasons for inclusion of these airlines in worst airlines is also stated.
First thing to keep in mind that they included only national (state owned) airlines in this list, probably their might be many other even worst airlines than these. Secondly the criteria was based on few things; percentage of delayed flights, in-flight entertainment, Customer Service, Foods etc.

According to this video, following are 5 worst national airlines:
5. U.S. Airways
4. PIA (Pakistan International Airlines)
3. Nepal Airlines
2. Bulgaria Airlines
1. Air Koryo 

In 1970's PIA was regarded as Aisa's best airline. It was the time when PIA also provides technical and administrative assistance or leased planes to many foreign airlines including Somali Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Air Malta and Yemenia. PIA also helped establish Emirates Airlines by leasing two of its airplanes. But now PIA owned only 35 air-crafts and there are about 18000 employees.

Being a patriot Pakistani, we pray for the revival of Pakistan International Airlines and wish to see PIA flights around the world so it can gain once again its past days glory.
