Recently Union ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH) has released a notification that states contactless services through Aadhar authentication are launched for the citizens of India. Now, you are not required to visit the regional transport offices (RTOs) to avail services including renewal of driver’s license, obtaining a learners’ permit, vehicle registration, and more.
As per the notification, it will cover a total of 18 services. The new system will simplify the government delivery processes and bring in more efficiency and transparency. It will also enable you to get the work done directly from the RTO in a seamless manner.
