Digital pathways for registration of vehicles, driving licences

Thursday, 14 January 2021 | PNS | Chandigarh

To ensure transparency and make transport services more easily available in the state, Punjab Transport Department has initiated digital pathways for registration of vehicles and driving licences.

Now, all the transport department services are just a click away and people can avail these services through “Vahan and Sarathi” web applications 24x7 while sitting at their homes. These services can also be availed through the websites  and, Transport Minister Razia Sultana said on Wednesday.

Presiding over a high-level meeting of senior officials, the Minister said that the transport department has allowed the vehicle registration and driving license services through over 500 Sewa Kendras across the state to facilitate those people who are not well-versed with online working. “The persons availing the services will have to pay just Rs.50 per application. Apart from the Sewa Kendras, the transport department has also authorized more than 3000 village level entrepreneurs to run ‘Common Service Centers’, where people can avail the services by paying just Rs.30 per application. Now, the citizens-centric service centres have been increased to more than 3500 as compared to 98 offices of the earlier”, she added.

Every year as many as 75 lakh persons visit the STC field offices, said Sultana, adding that with the initiation of online services for registration of vehicles and driving license, foot-fall will definitely decrease as the people will be enabled to avail government services online in a transparent manner. It would also increase the efficacy of the department. This new system would abolish the manual file submitting system in all the offices of the transport department.

She said that the authorisation of these “Common Services Centers’ in the villages would increase the income of youth, besides providing hassle-free services of the transport department to the people near their homes. The services like filling up online forms, uploading necessary documents, paying online fee etc., will be provided at these centres.
