Currently, the extension of STNK can be (done) online, but we are also preparing e-STNK.Bandung, West Java (ANTARA) - National Police (Polri) chief, General Listyo Sigit Prabowo, has said that Polri is planning to provide electric vehicle registration certificates (e-STNK) to improve public service quality through the utilization of digital technology.
"Today, the e-Signal app was launched; this is a system for the STNK extension service. Soon, we will plan an e-STNK after we develop the program," he informed after attending a national coordination meeting of the One-stop Administrative System’s (Samsat’s) developers here on Tuesday.
He said that the Police Traffic Corps has launched several programs to improve services to the community, one of which is the Electronic Samsat Digital (e-Signal) app, which allows vehicle owners to extend their STNK online.
"Currently, the extension of STNK can be (done) online, but we are also preparing e-STNK," the police chief added.
Other than STNK online extension, the e-Signal app has other features, for instance, it allows users to pay motorized vehicle tax (PKB) and make their Road Transport Accident Fund Compulsory Contribution (SWDKLLJ).
The nationally integrated application, which can be downloaded on mobile phones, utilizes the police's database of motorized vehicles, the Population and Civil Registry database of the Home Affairs Ministry, and the PKB information system managed by each provincial revenue agency (Bapenda).
In addition to providing services to the community digitally, the app also accommodates the interests of other parties such as Bapenda, state-owned insurer Jasa Raharja, and the Regional Development Bank (BPD).
The e-Signal system can also verify the identities of motorized vehicle owners through face matching with electronic national identity card (e-KTP) data of the Home Ministry.
Meanwhile, the head of West Java Bapenda, Dedi Taufik, expressed support for Polri, which has made the application, saying that the app can be key for data synchronization.
The app does not necessarily replace almost similar applications that have been made by local governments; instead, it gives people more choice in accessing government services, he said.
