BHUBANESWAR: The long queues and crowd on the premises of the State Transport Authority across Odisha would be a matter of the past soon with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s launch of nine online services of the RTAs.

Odisha would also be the first state in the country to offer learners’ driving license on mobile app with the launch of the special services.

The CM has launched these citizen-centric services under 5-T initiative.

This has enabled the transport offices of the State go paperless enabling the citizens to get the services online from any place and at any time.

The services include vehicle registration, auto approval of goods and contract carriage permits, special permits for buses, online application of international driving permit, renewal of registration and transfer of ownership in any RTO of the state and learners licence – all through mobile app.

The freedom to choose any transport office of the State for vehicle-related services will be a kind of liberation for thousands of people. The long queues in front of transport offices will soon be a thing of past, the Chief Minister stated.
