About the Authors:
Over 1000 Road Transport Offices (RTOs) across the country have been computerised thanks to the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH).
RTOs give required Registration Certificates (RC) and Driving Licenses (DL) that are valid across the country, subject to specific restrictions and approvals.
Because state regulations and manual/system-based procedures differ so widely across the country, it was vital to establish uniform standards for these papers on a pan-India basis to assure interoperability, accuracy, and timely information availability.
A SCOSTA group formed for this purpose recommended a standardised software that would be used across the country.
