Pan­vel RTO seeks plot to build track

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Pan­vel RTO that gen­er­ates Rs300 crore rev­enue every year has sent a pro­posal to Raigad col­lec­tor de­mand­ing a track for the test­ing of heavy and very heavy ve­hi­cles for is­suance of fit­ness cer­tifi­cates to them.

The pro­posal seeks 9 acres near Shird­hon vil­lage, along Mumbai-Goa high­way, for the track. The pro­posal was sent by the RTO to the rev­enue depart­ment. At present, trans­porters have to bring ve­hi­cles to the open plots in Kharghar for fit­ness cer­tifi­cate ver­i­fi­ca­tion.

The high court has in­structed the RTO to have in­de­pen­dent tracks for ver­i­fy­ing ve­hi­cle fit­ness. An RTO of­fi­cial said, “We are hope­ful that the plot will be al­lot­ted to us at the ear­li­est for the track to be de­vel­oped.”
