Meanwhile, the company clarified allegation made regarding the biding process and awarding of the contract awarded for the Aluminum Number Plate and QR Code after winning the bid of designing and selling of new Aluminum Number Plates, establishing a sophisticated Electrical Vehicle Management System.
