licence-7Maharashtra transport department will start delivering driving licences at the applicant’s home from next month, with an intention to curb related malpractices. The proposal in which driving licenses would be delivered at the applicant’s home has been approved and people would get the driving licences on their residential addresses from next month. The government would also be amending the state Motor Vehicle Act to make the service mandatory for all the regional transport offices. According to an official in the transport department, there would be a seperate window across all the transport offices where people can pay and get the licence delivered at their doorstep. The service charges would be between Rs20 to 30. The proposal was mooted by the department with an intension to curb malpractices and the role of middlemen involved in making licences. Another reason for the service is to establish a separate system to verify the applicant’s address proof, as there is no mechanism to check the correct address. The department is confident that the service would also end the practises of making licences on fake addresses. Bureau report – NMTV News.
