Lahore Fifty-five posts of inspectors are lying vacant in Excise and Taxation Department for long and other inspectors have been given charge of these posts who have hired private men for performing duty on their place. Private men are issuing property tax notice and collecting the same on the behalf of these inspectors. Besides inspectors, TEOS have also been given double charge due to shortage of the staff. The process of computerised registration of vehicles has also been marred in three districts of the province including Bahawalnagar, Chiniot and Khanewal due to shortage of staff.
