Car buy­ers to get RCs at doorstep

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - Sid­hartha.Roy@

New Delhi: Buy­ing a new car? Do it and for­get about the bother of col­lect­ing the regis­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate. It will be de­liv­ered to your doorstep. Delhi gov­ern­ment’s trans­port de­part­ment has started send­ing regis­tra­tion cer­tifi­cates through Speed Post for ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered af­ter Oc­to­ber 1. The buy­ers will first be­in­formed through a phone text mes­sage and then the RC will be de­liv­ered to their houses.

The new soft­ware devel­oped by the de­part­ment also al­lows own­ers to track the sta­tus of their regis­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate. Reg­u­lar up­dates will be sent by SMS too. “Apart from mak­ing the process has­sle free for ve­hi­cle own­ers, the new sys­tem will en­sure that car buy­ers do not pro­vide a wrong or false ad­dress,” a se­nior trans­port de­part­ment of­fi­cial said.

This ini­tia­tive is part of the trans­port de­part­ment’s en­deav­our to go on­line in a ma­jor way. It has also made cer­tain pro­cesses on­line, in­clud­ing pro­vi­sion of trade cer­tifi­cates to deal­ers, re­newal of li­cences and per­mits such as the All In­dia Tourist Per­mit for taxis.
