Six RTO services will go 'faceless' online starting tomorrow.

License renewal, duplicate driving license, change of address on a licence, duplicate Registration Certificate (RC) book, change of address on the RC book, and a no-objection certificate for transfer of a licence to another state are among the six services offered.

Every year, around 18 lakh to 20 lakh applications are submitted for these services, for which paperwork would be eliminated. Anil Parab, the transport minister, will debut the services.

"For a few days, the services will be provided in Regional Transport Office (RTO) offices for people who are unable to go online, but they will eventually be completely online," state transport commissioner Avinash Dhakne said.

Doctors can now generate a user Identity Document (ID) and password for a doctor's certificate (needed for license renewal) and give certificates to qualified applicants online. This certificate is saved on the Vahan site, and one no longer needs to come to the RTO with the certificate and form, he explained.

"We aim to minimize red tape in our department and make the license and automobile registration procedure straightforward and uncomplicated for residents," stated a senior transportation official. The use of online systems for licensing, car registration, tax collection, and other RTO fee payments has decreased lineups at city RTOs by more than 70%. We want as many individuals as possible to avoid coming to our offices and instead work from wherever they are. All license registration will be available online thanks to digital signatures connected to Aadhar.
