The Punjab Information Technology Board unveiled a registration portal specifically designed for axle load management. Once registered on the portal, the weight of goods-laden vehicles departing from factories will be closely monitored by the Punjab highway police, traffic police, and the regional transport authority.

Each vehicle and its respective load will receive automated metered registration through the employment of electronic weighbridges.
