Transfer of vehicle RCs only online from Mar 7

NEW DELHI: Transfer of vehicle registration certificates (RC) will be processed only online from March 7 at zonal transport offices in Delhi.
An official of the Delhi Transport Department said that applicants will only be called personally if there is any discrepancy in signatures.
The idea comes after the Doorstep Delivery of Services scheme by the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government, which focuses on promoting digital delivery of services.
The Transport Department has facilitated the transfer of RCs of vehicles possible online at four major motor licensing offices (MLOs) in the Capital and is preparing to extend the service to all such facilities soon.
An exercise both in favour of transparency and to make the process more convenient for vehicle owners, the service is currently available at MLOs at Mall Road, IP Depot, Janakpuri and Vasant Vihar.
An estimated footfall of 50,000 people is registered at Transport Department facilities for varying reasons on a daily basis. At the moment, the transfer of ownership of a vehicle is to be applied for at the concerned zonal office, where the vehicle was previously registered.
A plethora of documentation, from the RC in original to two separate forms, an attested copy of valid insurance, the copy of address proof of buyer and several others are required for the purpose.
"Vehicle owners will now be able to utilise the service online, upload the required papers and be required to visit the said motor licensing offices only when required to prove their identity," said an official.
He added that debit cards will now be accepted for all online transactions in Transport Department offices. Credit cards, however, will not be accepted as of yet.
In a similar measure, aimed at reducing the interface between the public and Delhi government officials and to crack down on possible corruption, the Transport Department has been sending copies of RCs to owners of new vehicles through Speed Post, since late last year.
