Feb 15, Colombo: The government has decided to grant another two months to register the motorcycles imported illegally and circulated in market after the four-month amnesty period granted earlier ended on 31 January.

There are numerous motorcycles which are not registered in the Department of Motor Traffic (DMT) and the government granted an amnesty period last year to register these motorcycles.

Accordingly, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the registration of illegally imported motor cycles up to 450cc engine capacity subject to a surcharge charged on the engine capacity till 31-01-2017.

Within this period 1,558 motor cycles have been registered and around another 2500 applications have been received regarding registration.

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved a proposal tabled by the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva to extend this period from another two months from 31 January to 31 march 2017 to enable proper completion of the registration activities.
