CAIRO: A total of 600 fuel smart cards have been delivered Tuk-Tuk drivers in Upper Egypt’s governorate of Fayoum, Youm7 reported Sunday.

The move comes as part of the Finance Ministry’s plan to curb misuse of petroleum products and to cut state fuel subsidies, which account for 13 percent of government spending in the public budget for the 2015-16 Fiscal Year, Assistant Finance Minister for Institutional Development Amr Badawi told Al Masry Al Youm Sunday.

“So far, the Finance Ministry has delivered 5.7 million fuel cards for tuk-tuks to traffic departments in 27 governorates,” Badawi said, calling on Tuk Tuk drivers and owners to collect their cards from the respective departments.

I-Finance, the company responsible for the fuel smart cards system said that a total of 5.2 million cards have been issued, including 4.4 million cards for gasoline and 800,000 cards for diesel fuel, Youm7 reported.
