The RTO would distribute licenses to older folks at their homes.

RTO Jitendra Raghuvanshi has directed that actions be taken to give this opportunity to elderly persons on a priority basis, including expedited processing of their applications. More than two dozen cards have been sent to the doors of older folks in various regions of the city.

In response to applicant's concerns about not receiving their driving licenses for months, the Regional Transport Office (RTO) has taken the effort to assist older residents by presenting their licenses at their doorstep.

RTO authorities have agreed to send older person's driving licenses to their homes via their workers or even via personal efforts, so that individuals do not have to visit to the office many times.

Senior folk's phone numbers are being collected by officials and staff, and not only driving licenses, but also renewal licenses and registration cards are being delivered to them.

"We are attempting to assist older persons in such a way that they will not have to return to the office. Employees are obtaining their phone numbers and addresses so that they may be contacted for any needs and to send the cards," Assistant Regional Transport Officer (ARTO) Hridyesh Yadav explained.

According to officials, the cards are being distributed through employees and personnel based on their domicile. For example, if a driver resides in the Annapurna region, he may pass the card off to a senior citizen who lives there.

RTO authorities also stated that the backlog of driving licenses and cards has been reduced to a bare minimum.
