The Maharashtra government launched 'faceless Regional Transport Offices (RTOs)' with immediate effect to help citizens avail facilities linked to the sector better.
With this new launch, driving licenses and several other services will be available to people who need not physically make the rounds of RTOs.
This new initiative will also save paper since 18-20 lakh applications are received annually, and also save time for the people. Also, it will also bring about transparency and provide an environment-friendly interface.
Under this initiative, the people would need to have their Aadhaar numbers linked to their mobile phones to be part of the 'Faceless RTO' scheme. The applicant will have to enroll himself through Aadhar number verification using OTP sent on the registered mobile number. After verification from the Aadhar portal, the application will be processed.
Six important services will be made available online. The applicants will not have to come to RTOs for the same. The six services are Secondary Registration Certificate, No Objection Certificate, Change of Address on Registration Certificate, Renewal of Driving Licence, Change of Address on Licence and Renewal of Licence.
