Bhubaneswar, Feb 10: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday launched as many as nine online services to be rendered by the State Transport Authority henceforth.
The online services are: Vehicle registration, auto approval of goods & contract carriage permits, special permits for buses, application of international driving permit, renewal of registration & transfer of ownership in any RTO of Odisha and submission of application for learner’s license (LL) via Mobile App.
The citizen centric services were launched under the 5T initiative. With this, the transport offices of the State went paperless enabling the citizens to get the services online from any place any time, said an official release issued from the CM’s Office.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said that the freedom to choose any transport office of the State for vehicle related services will be a kind of liberation for thousands of people. The long queues in front of transport offices will soon be a thing of past, he hoped.
He said that Odisha is the first State in the country using the platform of NIC to introduce document upload through Digital Signature with auto number generation, thereby dispensing with the submission of paper documents at the local Road Transport Offices, and allowing the owner to register the vehicle at any Transport Office of the State.
He added that the State is also the first to introduce Learner License Application in UMANG App, the mobile platform of National E-Governance Division.
