The laws for numerous tasks relating to regional transportation offices, including driving licence, have changed in West Bengal. Snehasish Chakraborty, the minister of transport for West Bengal, has said that a variety of services, including car registration and apprentice licence (learning licence), would be available online. The issues that the general public was having at the regional transportation offices will no longer exist as a result of the state government’s decision. These include things like learning a licence and car registration.
Chakraborty said, “We have chosen to make the services from car registration to apprentice licence and permission accessible online as part of an endeavour to decongest the people in the regional transport offices.” The tasks may be completed from home, and these actions will benefit both regular people and those working in the transportation industry.
He said that in order to use services like changing the ownership (post-purchase) of a car, neither the seller nor the buyer would need to visit the Regional Transport Offices; instead, they would engage virtually and then visit their office. There won’t be a necessity. These online services will be accessible in roughly a month, according to Chakraborty.
According to Snehasish Chakraborty, the addition of 1180 electric buses to the fleet in the near future would help the state transportation enterprise achieve its 2030 goal of being environmentally friendly. With Tata Motors, “the state has already inked an arrangement for 1,180 electric buses, which will start arriving shortly,” he said. To lessen traffic pollution, the minister said that CNG stations and electrical charging stations would be installed across the state.
