Transport Commissioner N. Balasubrahmanyam launched online service for issue of licences at a trade union office and an automobile dealer showroom in Visakhapatnam for the first time in the State on Saturday.
Earlier, applicants had to book slots through Mee Seva centres, visit the RTA office and form separate queues for taking the application forms, for getting their digital photo in the photo room and for payment of the requisite fee. The applicants had to spend a couple of hours at the RTA office for all these works.
Online applicants can simply log on to aprtacitizen.epragathi.org and fill in the application form, take their passport photograph with their smart phone and upload it and also pay the requisite fee online. The system is linked to Aadhar and it would extract the details of the individual.
The applicant has to scan a copy of his/her present address and upload it, if there is a change in the address from that given in the Aadhar. The applicant can complete the whole process in less than five minutes.
Online applicants need not apply for any other forms at the RTA office. They can directly take the test after getting their finger print scanned for identification.The RTA services pertaining to renewal of licence, issue of duplicate licence, change of address and other services will also be made online soon.
