Punjab CM asks Transport Dept to ensure zero pendency of DL, RC by Jun 15

Wednesday, 31 May 2023 | PNS | Chandigarh

Aimed at mitigating the woes of the common man, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday asked the Transport Department to ensure zero pendency of the Driving License (DL) and Registration Certificate (RC) of vehicles by June 15.
Mann, chairing a meeting of the state Transport Department, underlined the need for providing these services to the people in a time-bound manner. “The people should not face any sort of inconvenience in getting the DLs and RCs issued from the State Government,” he said.
He categorically asked the officers to ensure that the backlog of RCs and DLs, which had been pending because of technical reasons, is cleared by June 15 by all means.
“The pendency of printing of smart cards in respect of DL is almost cleared. On April 8, only 29,934 DLs were printed which was increased to 3,08,061 on May 29…The pendency of printing of DLs has been reduced from 1,77,012 on April 8 to 1,943 on May 29,” he noted.
Similarly, the Chief Minister said that printing of RC was nil on April 8 but it was recorded 3,47,272 on May 29. The pendency of printing of smart cards of RC is 56,251 as on May 29 whereas it was 2,26,825 on April 8.
Mann said that in order to avoid problems of printing and pendency in the future, an undertaking should be taken from the company that the stock of smartcards required for the coming three months would be available with them.
The Chief Minister also said that most of the problems in the issuance of DL are coming as most of the time fee is deposited and the applicant does not come for a photograph or the applicant applies for two categories (Motor Cycle & LMV) but appears for the competence test only for one category.
Likewise, he said that in case of RC non-fitting of high-security registration plates without which RC cannot be approved and non-depositing of complete required government fee or motor vehicle tax is the reason for delay, Mann said, adding that most of time, people do not upload complete documents as required under rules due to which delay occurs adding that applicants must avoid these issues.
