Chandigarh, September 13

Waiting for hours at the Children’s Traffic Park in Sector 23 for driving test will soon be a thing of the past. For the Registering and Licensing Authority, Chandigarh, is planning to start the online appointment of applicants. The RLA is also working on starting the same facility for the written test.

Sources said the NIC was preparing a software. The RLA had earlier started the online appointment system for the registration of vehicles and issuance of driver’s licence in the main office of Registering and Licensing Authority, Sector 17, in July, which has been running successfully ever since. An official of the RLA said they had opened two more online booking counters in the office. He said the online appointment system had been introduced to save the time of residents. The residents will have to follow certain steps for applying online. They will have to log in on the official website i.e. for getting an appointment and write name, gender, mobile number and appointment type. After this, an applicant will receive a one time password (OTP) on his/her registered mobile number. On entering the OTP, the page for selection of date and time for appointment will be opened. One will have to select the date and time slot for the submission of his/her file in the Registering and Licensing Authority.

An applicant will then have to visit the RLA office for the submission of file, along with the confirmation of appointment. The average number of applicants has now reached 30 per day.

Capt Karnail Singh, in charge, RLA refused to say anything.
