MVRS is a web based system with My Sql Database on the backend and PHP on the frontend. District Excise & Taxation Offices access the MVRS database through a web browser over the internet. The use of live web has eliminated the chances of fake vehicles registration. The 20 district Excise & Taxation Offices are currently online connected with main database located at Civic Center Karachi whereas the remaining districts would soon be on-lined.
