Non-Ma­ha­rash­tri­ans sub­mit­ting bo­gus pa­pers for auto per­mits: MNS

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NEWS - G Mo­hi­ud­din Jeddy ht­for­nav­i­mum­bai@hin­dus­tan­times.com

A day af­ter Maharashtra Navnir­man Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thack­eray claimed that 70% of those be­ing is­sued au­torick­shaw per­mits are non-Ma­ha­rash­tri­ans and that new au­torick­shaws should be burnt, the Navi Mum­bai unit of the MNS swung into ac­tion and took a del­e­ga­tion to the deputy RTO of­fice in Vashi.

Led by its city pres­i­dent Ga­janan Kale, the MNS del­e­ga­tion al­leged that the non-Ma­ha­rash­tri­ans were sub­mit­ting bo­gus doc­u­ments to get au­torick­shaw per­mits. The del­e­ga­tion stated that it will ver­ify the doc­u­ments and only then should the per­mits be given, else it will take re­course to MNS style ag­i­ta­tion.

Kale said, “Of the 1,943 ap­pli­ca­tions for auto per­mits, sev­eral non-Ma­ha­rash­tri­ans have sub­mit­ted bo­gus doc­u­ments dur­ing the ver­i­fi­ca­tion process.”

He said, “Money has changed hands and sev­eral bo­gus doc­u­ments in­clud­ing aad­har card, domi­cile cer­tifi­cate, voter id card, pan card, po­lice char­ac­ter cer­tifi­cate etc. have been sub­mit­ted.”

Kale said, “Some ap­pli­cants have stated their ad­dress as that of Cidco of­fice can­teen while some have given the ad­dress of MAFCO shops which have long shut. “All the doc­u­ments should be ver­i­fied again and only then should the in­tent let­ter and auto per­mits be given. Strict ac­tion should be taken against those sub­mit­ting bo­gus doc­u­ments.”

He added, “If the doc­u­ments are given to us, we too will ver­ify them and as­sist the RTO in their work.”

Deputy RTO San­jay Dhaigude said, “Dur­ing the ver­i­fi­ca­tion process, we have re­ceived doc­u­ments from 1817 per­sons. 126 have not sub­mit­ted their doc­u­ments and hence will not be el­i­gi­ble for the per­mit.”

He in­formed, “Of th­ese 651 ap­pli­cants are orig­i­nally from out­side Maharashtra. There are 64 women ap­pli­cants as well.”

Dhaigude said, “We have un­der­taken a very strict ver­i­fi­ca­tion process and fol­lowed all the norms and reg­u­la­tions. It was mon­i­tored by a spe­cial com­mit­tee and video recorded.”
