Cumbersome transport tax payment procedures

The process of depositing payments to the BRTA is very inconvenient for vehicle owners. Southeast Bank on the New Elephant Road used to accept payments, but it was later transferred to the City Bank near the City College. But yesterday, City Bank refused to accept the payment saying that they were short of officers. They advised us to go to the NRB Bank in Zigatola, who also turned us away because they didn't have the papers required to receive road taxes. They suggested that we go to One Bank in Dhanmondi instead.
This is proof of how civilians who want to pay their dues on or before the due date are harassed and inconvenienced. It's high time that the BRTA arranges receipt of payment from specified banks. The ideal solution would be for us to pay at the bank branches closest to our respective areas. We hope the BRTA will look into this matter immediately so that we can pay our taxes before the expiry dates.
