Online driving license system inaugurated in Delhi
In some good news for the drivers in the capital city of New Delhi, India, the application for the driver’s license can be easily done online. Applicants can approach any of the zonal offices to apply for a license.
All the zonal offices have been linked so that the applicants can approach any office nearer to their work place, or according to their convenience. Appointments can be taken online or on phone according to the applicant’s convenience. So no more standing in long queues.
The new system was inaugurated on Friday by Chief minister Sheila Dikshit and transport minister Arvinder Singh Lovely. Transport officials can now handle the problem of agents who used to charge exorbitant commissions from the applicants outside the offices. “People approached touts to get their work done without standing in queues. Now the system has been streamlined, anyone with valid documents can go and get a license easily,” a senior transport official said.
According to the officials, the new system will help to reduce the work load, as the work will be divided among all the zonal offices.
