    With octroi gone, cars &
    With octroi gone, cars & bikes make a rush for Mum RTOs 105% More Bikes Registered. For Cars, Rise Is 42% RTOseva4U.com informs you that there has been a sharp increase in the registration of new cars, twowheelers, minibuses and tempos in Mumbai because of the abolition of octroi collection at the city’s check posts in 2017. Before that, many Mumbaikars preferred to register their vehicles in other municipal areas of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, if not in cities beyond MMR. In just one year, 105% more two-wheelers and 42% more cars and SUVS have been registered in the island city. The number of new registrations in the suburbs too has gone up, though not to as great an extent as in the island city. Octroi comprised a 4.5% additional levy on the purchase of vehicles under the jurisdiction of the four RTOs within BMC limits. This included the Tardeo RTO (island city), Wadala RTO (eastern suburbs), and Andheri and Borivli RTOs (western suburbs). According to an official, a significant number of buyers would prefer to register their vehicles outside Mumbai to save costs, which would be Rs 3, 000-5, 000 for two-wheelers, Rs 18, 000 on an average for a hatchback to around Rs 60, 000 for an SUV. One would register vehicles at RTOs as far as Pen or Panvel. “But after octroi abolition came into effect on July 1, 2017, there is no difference between registering a car within Mumbai or outside it. You have to pay the same road tax and insurance across MMR, ” said a senior official from the Tardeo RTO. “Now, whether or not supported by dealers, buyers are opting for registration within Mumbai.” The Tardeo RTO provided statistics comparing the registration of vehicles in 2017-18 with that done in 2016-17. In the island city, especially south Mumbai, the number of motorcyles and scooters registered in 2017-18 was 105% more (in numbers, a rise of 24, 000) as compared to the previous year, while car registrations shot up by 40% (a rise of 5, 000). In case of commercial vehicles, four-wheeler delivery vans went up by almost 175%, and minibuses by 660%, officials said. “In some cases, we are getting applications from car dealers in Thane who want vehicles to be registered in Mumbai (eastern suburbs RTO) as buyers stay there. In one case, a buyer from Mulund could not find any showroom of his preferred car in his vicinity and went to Thane to buy the vehicle. In his case, the dealer at Thane assured that the vehicle will be registered in Mumbai with an MH-03 number plate (eastern suburbs), ” said an official from Wadala RTO. Also, the process of registrations has become faster because of the implementation of the online system Vahan across RTOs. More than 80% of the job is being done at the manufacturer and dealer levels, including the uploading of buyer’s information, fee paying and providing the vehicle’s technical specifications. An RTO inspector checks the vehicle’s specifications within 24 hours, and within the next 24 hours, an assistant RTO gives approval and also assigns a new registration number. “Now, instead of waiting endlessly for a number plate, you can get it within 48 hours of the file reaching the RTO, ” said a transport department official.

    Mumbai RTOs not ready wit
    Mumbai RTOs not ready with test tracks; deadline ends in April  The Bombay HC, in its order, had clearly stated it won’t grant an extension for making the test tracks. None of the four regional transport offices (RTO) in the city are ready with the 250-metre brake test tracks required to conduct vehicle fitness tests, although the deadline set by the Bombay high court (HC) ends this month. On September 14, while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Pune-based whistleblower Shrikant Karve, the HC had directed the transport department to stop conducting vehicle fitness tests on open roads by April-end. The HC, in its order, had clearly stated it won’t grant an extension for making the test tracks. It had warned that if the tracks are not ready within six months, it might stop brake tests or renewal of fitness certificates. Although not in Mumbai, the transport department did manage to get test tracks ready in other parts of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). On Sunday, the department is going to inaugurate the track of the Panvel RTO at Taloja, in the presence of transport minister Diwakar Raote. In case of commercial vehicles, one with the yellow number plates, fitness tests are conducted annually, except for newly registered ones. New vehicles have to renew their fitness certificate two years after registration while private vehicles, one with the white number plates, have to do so after 15 years. The Tardeo RTO has been conducting vehicle fitness tests in its office premises, on a testing track of less than 100 metre. Andheri RTO and Wadala RTO have been conducting the tests on open roads, while Borivli RTO has been doing so on a rented BEST plot. According to RTO officials, the Tardeo RTO had sought the land of Aarey dairy at Worli sea face for the test track, while Wadala RTO had requested for itsdairy land at Kurla, besides a government land at Mulund. Borivli RTO and Andheri RTO had sought lands adjacent to Aarey road in Goregaon and near the Versova cemetery, respectively. Apart from Andheri, the government has not allotted the land to any other RTO in Mumbai. A senior RTO official said, “The government issued a notification about the allotment of land to RTOs months ago, but the files are still pending at the collector’s office, ” he said, requesting anonymity. Another official said they resent the proposals for the plots. Meanwhile, transport secretary and commissioner, Manoj Saunik, could not be reached for comment. Source:HT

    From April, you can give
    From April, you can give your mother’s name in driving licence in Delhi   NEW DELHI: From next month, those applying for a permanent driving licencein Delhi would be able to have their mother’s name on the licence instead of their father’s name, if they wish. At present, applicants have to provide their father’s or husband’s name while applying for a licence. In what it terms as a progressive step, Delhi government’s transport department would now allow applicants to provide their mother’s name instead. “This is a big step in bringing gender equality at the transport department and we plan to bring in this change by April, ” said a senior transport department official. This would be a big help specifically for those who for some reason do not want to provide their father’s name or have a single parent, ” he said. “We are modifying our software to bring in these changes. We believe the software tweaks should be ready this week, ” the official said. The modification would indeed be a big change as the permanent driving licence also acts as an important identity proof. There are 13 regional transport offices (RTOs) in Delhi and approximately 1, 600 permanent driving licences are issued in the capital every working day. About four lakh licences are issued in a year and almost one lakh applications are rejected on different grounds. “The capital would be the first state to issue licences with the mother’s name, ” the official said. The decision is in the same direction in which a host of changes were brought in during 2016 while applying for a passport. In the same year, the Delhi high court had held that in certain cases, mother's name is sufficient for a child to apply for a passport, especially because a single woman can be a natural guardian as well as a parent.
