The RTO is experiencing a scarcity of officers and soldiers.

For 15 years, there was no recruiting in the transport department, from officials to constables. More over half of the positions, from ARTO to constable, are currently vacant. This is why there are three panels of work from one officer to the staff and soldiers. Due to these factors, it has become difficult for the department to take action on other vehicles, such as unsafe school buses roaming the streets. This is known to everyone, from the Transportation Commissioner to the administration. Repeated letters was also sent up to the government level, but no effort was made to fill vacant positions.

Employees are called from other districts

According to VK Sonakia, Additional Transport Commissioner Enforcement, there is a severe scarcity of officers and soldiers. The government has been asked to finish this. At the moment, policemen and constables from other districts are being called in to fill the vacancy. This arrangement will not last long. A letter has been sent to begin the government recruitment process.
