From June 5, the Regional Transport Office (RTO), Pune, will go ‘compulsorily cashless’ and would accept various licence fees only through online channels.
According to the statement issued by RTO Babasaheb Ajri, the RTO cash counters at the RTO Headquarters on Bund Garden Road, the office at Alandi Road and the Indian Driving Training and Research (IDTR) will be shut down.
People who are applying for International Driving Permit (IDP) and Conductor Licence will be granted permission to pay the fees at the counter.
“The Pune RTO has adopted Sarathi 4.0, which has been developed by the Union Ministry for Road Transport and National Informatics Centre (NIC). We have been accepting the the licence application forms online. Now, we have decided to go completely online, with the fee for most of the licences being accepted only through online avenues”
One can pay the requisite fee by visiting www.parivahan.gov.in, followed by clicking on Sarathi Services and then navigating to Fee Payment.
Ajri further added,
It’s possible that some of the applicants who are not well-versed with digital technology may face issues with this. However, they can visit the Citizen Facilitation Centre to fill the form and pay the fee online.
