The deadline for returning the green slip was extended by two months at the end of June.
Nevertheless, the number of policyholders still claiming reimbursement had only marginally decreased from 782,000 to 753,742 or by only 3.6 percent.
Mr. Dominello said that the unclaimed money would go to lower the green slip premiums from January 2020.
Motorists in Australia's most populous state now pay an average of $ 490 for their CTP green slip – the lowest since the coalition came to power eight years ago.
Since the beginning of last year, $ 195 million has been reimbursed to 3.2 million drivers.
