RTO to digitise 12 lakh files in 2 years

Saturday, 24 July 2021 | PNS | Dehradun

The digitisation process started by the regional transport office (RTO) of Dehradun to preserve old files will take a minimum of two years to digitise 12 lakh files piling up in the premises for decades. During a recent surprise inspection, State Transport secretary Ranjit Sinha was furious after observing that almost every room in RTO is filled with files of old paper documents mounted up there for years.

He directed the officials to speed up the process of digitisation to restore the files digitally in order to save time and space in the RTO building. Talking about the transport secretary's order, Dwarika Prasad, the assistant regional transport officer (ARTO) said that the company managing the digitisation process of RTO has already said that it will take at least two years to finish the entire procedure of storing data of all files digitally.

"We want the digitisation process to be finished soon too as it will help us to maintain a uniform database of every service provided by RTO. We will be able to get information at one click rather than digging through piles of files but restoration of 12 lakh files will definitely take time. However, we have directed the company to speed up the process and finish the work as soon as possible," asserted Prasad. Meanwhile, the transport secretary has also asked the officials to make people aware of online services provided by RTO besides promoting cashless transactions on the premises.

He also instructed officials to provide a list of the vehicles with pending dues and taxes to the enforcement team of RTO to take appropriate action against them. On the question of  RTO's preparation to follow up on these orders, the ARTO said that they are working on these orders and will soon conduct a meeting to discuss the plan for the same.
