Transport & vehicle registration systems in India is controlled & monitored through RTO (Regional Transport Office) and RCO (Regional Certificate Office). There has always been a feeling of an inappropriate system in place in both of these offices as people have to waste their precious time standing outside these offices. Most of the time, people have to visit again and again to get their work performed. The situation has become worst as there are lots of agents working with the staff in these Government offices. The problems of people are increasing day by day, so there is a strong need to improve the whole system.
In an effort to minimize the rush at the RTO, the Union Government of India is thinking to link the aAadhar with a registration certificate and driving license. This will make the whole process very simple, comfortable, and quick. Apart from this, visitors to these offices will also get rid of touts who are making handsome money and looting people.
In India, RTO (Regional Transport Office) & RTA (Regional Transport Authority) issue driving licenses to the people. You cannot drive a bike, car or other four-wheelers otherwise you have to face legal actions from traffic police. Before getting a permanent license, one has to apply for a learning license first.
After one month of learning license, you can visit RTO and give the examination and driving test to obtain a full license.
The Government’s decision to link RC & Driving Licence will allow the uploading of the applicant’s detail on the Sarathi web portal. The same is the case with new vehicle registration whereby purchaser details will be uploaded to the Vahan web portal. The overall purpose of these future actions would be to eliminate time wastage, visits to RTO, and making the whole process paperless. As the process will be digitalized in such a way that the applicant can do all this by sitting at home.
The process to link your RC (Registration Certificate) & Driving license will be the same as that of any other services such as banks or any other institutions. You will have to make an account on the website of the driving license office. Upon successful login, you have to choose your vehicle and then enter your 12 digit Aadhar number. This 12 digits unique number is one step solution to all your demographic and biometric details. Any person who is living in India for 182 days or more can apply for the Aadhar as such a person will fall in the category of a resident under the rules and regulations of India. The next step will be the enter the Captcha or security code as shown in the image. Once you click the send OTP (One Time Password) button, you will receive OTP on your Aadhar registered mobile number. You will then have to enter this OTP on the screen to verify and link your Aadhar with your driving license and RC.
