NEW DELHI: Standing in long queues to get the registration certificate (RC) of your vehicle will soon be a thing of the past. You will be able to get the RC of your car or any other vehicle within minutes, minus any data error, thanks to a proposed automated registration system. The transport ministry has come up with an IT-based mechanism which enables tracking and recording of all vehicle details including the model, colour and chassis number etc right from the manufacturing level.

This is how the system will work: 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, speeding up the whole process, leaving no room for error.

 

Explaining the flaws with the current system, a transport official said “At present, the dealer has to key in all details at the end before an RC is issued. Now they don’t need to do this as data will be entered at each level.”

Giving an example of how the present system can throw up problems, an official said 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.

 

The Logical Indian community applauds this decision by the transport ministry, which will not only help reduce woes of the citizen regarding the sluggishness of transport department, but will also ensure genuine and error-free information. Recording details of motor vehicles right from the manufacturing level will help in developing an organised and hierarchical system. Moreover, this move will set an example for other departments to use IT for various business processes of theirs and hence contribute in making India, ‘Digital India’.
