PAN­VEL: The re­gional trans­port of­fice (RTO) in Pan­vel has earned al­most Rs9.5 crore for reg­is­ter­ing 1,964 ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing twowheel­ers, four-wheel­ers and trans­port ve­hi­cles — from Novem­ber 9 to 15.

While Novem­ber 9 was a work­ing day, till Sun­day, Novem­ber 15, there were of­fi­cial hol­i­days for six days.

Hence, peo­ple had pur­chased their ve­hi­cles ear­lier and ap­plied for reg­is­tra­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, re­gional trans­port of­fi­cer Arun Yevla, deputy re­gional trans­port of­fi­cer Anant Patil along with re­gional trans­port of­fi­cials and per­son­nel worked ex­tra time to en­sure the RTO of­fice re­ceived the huge rev­enue.

Suren­dra Nikam, as­sis­tant re­gional trans­port of­fi­cer, Pan­vel RTO, said, “Ear­lier, sev­eral lo­cal res­i­dents, would pur­chase ex­pen­sive high-end ve­hi­cles. How­ever, the trend has faded now, as the main­te­nance of such ve­hi­cles is high and the mar­ket con­di­tions are also not very good.”

“Smaller ve­hi­cles were pre­ferred this year for bud­getary rea­sons. This helped us earn good rev­enue,” said Nikam. 1,500 VE­HI­CLES REG­IS­TERED IN CITY Al­most 1,500 ve­hi­cles were reg­is­tered at the Navi Mum­bai RTO this Di­wali. Th­ese in­clude 465 four-wheel­ers, while the rest com­prised two-wheel­ers.

The RTO has a to­tal of 3.50 lakh ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered with it.

In the pre­vi­ous fi­nan­cial year, 22,406 ve­hi­cles were reg­is­tered.

In the cur­rent fi­nan­cial year, from April to Oc­to­ber, the num­ber had al­ready reached 23,785.

Ear­lier, sev­eral lo­cal res­i­dents would pur­chase ex­pen­sive ve­hi­cles... Smaller ve­hi­cles were pre­ferred this year for bud­getary rea­sons. This helped us earn good rev­enue. SUREN­DRA NIKAM, as­sis­tant re­gional trans­port of­fi­cer, Pan­vel RTO
