Usually, when people think about cars, what comes to mind are shining four-wheelers, huge showrooms, and big hoardings or advertisements featuring famous celebrities. However, there is a lot happening behind the scenes. The car’s raw materials are sourced from a place, it gets assembled in a plant, and people in offices run the show. The car also needs to be insured and registered. This is where the Regional Transport Office (RTO) comes in the picture. Different locations have different RTOs; for example, RTO Mumbai, RTO Navi Mumbai, etc.

Maharashtra: RTOs to Soon Become Completely Paperless

– August 24, 2020

Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) in Maharashtra will soon become completely paperless thanks to the introduction of e-signatures. With such a move, the processes for applying for a new driving license, renewing a driving license, registering a vehicle, etc. will become much easier. After the switch to e-signatures is made, those who want to apply for such documents can do so online. They will not be required to visit the RTOs, carry documents, and stand in a queue. Documentation and authentication can be done online and they will be required to visit the RTOs for the driving tests. This e-signature model has been in the works for a while. Now, the state government has approved it. The trials for it are in the last stage. The functioning will likely involve the usage of the Aadhaar card and a One-time Password-based (OTP) process.
