Online registration of vehicles by month-end

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 17 - Amidst reports that the introduction of online registration of vehicles in the State may get delayed, the Transport Department today said it will give a go-ahead to the hassle-free system in Guwahati by the end of this month.

However, for other districts, the cashless facility would take another one month�s time to be a reality.

�For the rest of the districts, where there are issues related to connectivity, we have set August 30 as the deadline to make the system functional,� said Dr J Balaji, Commissioner of Transport while talking to The Assam Tribune.

�The National Informatics Centre (NIC) is assessing the entire gamut of system and has sought another 15 days time, which means the system will be operational by the end of this month,� Dr Balaji said.

The Transport Department already had several rounds of meeting with the dealers and has urged them to abide by the laid-down rules.

�Issues like payment gateway through State Bank of India are also being discussed to ensure that the system runs smoothly without any hitches,� another senior Transport Department official told this reporter.

He said that Guwahati alone bears 60 per cent burden of the entire State.

Kamrup Metro District Transport Officer (Registration and Licensing) Gautam Das informed that nearly 60,000 vehicles, including commercial and non-commercial, are registered in the Kamrup (Metro) annually.

The trend this year is declining from last year as it all depends on the purchasing power of the people, Das said.

�The online system will not only ease the hassles for the public but will also bring in transparency in the entire system. We would be able to eliminate the middle men. Now the buyer can get the registration certificate at the dealer point itself.

As per Rule 42 of the MV Act, no car should be allowed to ply on the road without a temporary or permanent registration certificate.
