The Ministry of Finance announced on Sunday that it will begin the process of registering vehicles.
The new plan is to register only vehicles that are made for driving on the right side of the road.
The owner of the vehicles will be given a 60 percent discount on fees.
“For better security and the resolving of traffic problems—and also to increase the national income—and in general to bring reforms… the department of revenue of the Ministry of Finance made a plan,” said Ahmad Wali Haqmal, a spokesman for the Ministry of Finance.
According to the MoF, there are more than 100,000 unregistered vehicles in the country.
The Union of Car Sellers estimated that around 25 percent of the vehicles in the country lack legal documents and are not registered.
“The number of unregistered cars which are currently being driven has reached thousands and it is on the rise,” said Haji Wafa, head of the union.
The residents of Kabul meanwhile said that the unregistered vehicles cause insecurity and are linked to criminal activities in the country.
“The registration will bring income to the government. The cars will be provided with legal documents and the crimes will be prevented,” said Ajmal, a resident of Kabul.
Unregistered vehicles in rural areas have been given one month and those vehicles driving in the cities will have a six months' deadline.
