Transport ministry plans to speed up vehicle registration process

Transport ministry plans to speed up vehicle registration process

The government, in a bid, to reduce malpractices and speed up the system, has now revealed an IT-based mechanism to help it track and record all details of a vehicle, including the model, colour and chassis number right from the manufacturing level.

Through the new system one can get the registration certificate (RC) of their car or any other vehicle within minutes and there will be no glitches with regards to entry of  wrong data or details, including the chassis or engine number. 

A report in Economic Times has quoted a transport ministry official as saying, “As soon as the manufacturer submits a model for type approval, one set of details will be entered. Subsequently, the approved test agencies will enter details at their level while clearing the models. Thereafter, the manufacturer will have to enter all necessary details such as chassis and engine number. When it reaches the dealer's place, he has to fill a few specific records before processing an RC.”

Currently, the dealer has to key in all details before an RC is issued. "Now they don't need to do this as data will be entered at each level," the official said. 

While in big cities the registration certificates of cars and bikes are issued at dealers point', RCs of heavy vehicles are issued by motor vehicle inspectors at RTOs. Usually registration of such vehicles takes hours, but the new system will significantly reduce the time taken. 

Giving an example of how the present system can throw up problems, an official said that once about 10 trucks were found to have the same chassis number. "This could have happened either because of wrong data entry or duplication. This problem won't be there once this system is in place," said an official.
