New Delhi,17 Apr (Rajya Sabha):The Department of Road Transport & Highways has already made rules for issuance of Driving Licences and Registration Certificates in Smart Card mode. Computerisation of R.T.Os is a pre-requisite for this purpose. Various States are at different stages of computerisation of R.T.Os. However, to assist the States, the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC) under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Road Transport & Highways) has recently approved a proposal for interlinking of all R.T.Os in the country, at a total cost of around Rs. 148.00 crores, which also includes computerisation of R.T.Os in the country. There is, however, no proposal to introduce zonal permits for transport vehicles in the country.This information was given by the Minister of State for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, Shri K.H. Muniyappa in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
