LTA to hold re-draw for unsuccessful taxi permit applications
August 12, 2018 7:07 pm
The LTA has announced a taxi permit issuance re-draw will take place, following the closure of the 21 day grace period for the returning of permits from ineligible recipients.
The re-draw will give honest Fijians who missed out in the first barrel draw, the opportunity to be awarded taxi permits that were obtained dishonestly by some recipients.
The re-drawn permits will be made available based on the quota within each transport zone.
Successful applicants who have been granted provisional taxi permits during the barrel draw last month after filing honest and accurate applications will still be granted their substantive taxi permits after the re-draw has been held.
All ineligible recipients have until next Tuesday to surrender their provisional taxi permits to the LTA to avoid criminal charges.
Applicants who previously submitted false declarations will not be eligible for the re-draw.
