LEH, Mar 19: Assistant Regional Transport Office (ARTO) Leh went online from today.
Deputy Commissioner, Avny Lavasa, formally inaugurated the online version 4.0 in presence of SSP Sargun Shukla and ARO Khadim Hussian, today. District officers and representatives of various transport organizations, motor vehicle dealers and large number of vehicles owners were also present on the occasion.
Vahan version 4.0 is an upgraded version of the existing software (Vahan 1.0) that is currently running across all RTOs/ARTOs in the State and which is aimed at improving the existing system in many ways. The application has been designed and developed by the National Informatics Centre, Transport Division, New Delhi.
In the earlier version of Vahan, all the data of vehicles needs to be entered manually by the data entry operator. In new version of Vahan, the data entry operator has to enter very few vehicular parameters such as Chassis number, Engine number, name and address of the owner, manufacturer’s name and model of the vehicle and once these parameters of the vehicle entered, the remaining information pertaining to the vehicle such as un-laden weight, seating capacity, length of the vehicle, width, height, wheel base and laden weight will automatically be generated from the central server.
This application is also expected to reduce the work and load to the huge extent, both at the dealer and RTOs/ARTOs wherever the data entry is done. The second advantage is that there is very little chance for error in data entry as the system will automatically fetch data all the parameters of the vehicles once the base data has been entered.
The third advantage of this application is the fact that this web based application hosted centrally at single location, at the National Data Center, New Delhi. This eliminates the need for local infrastructure at the RTOs office, thereby saving time and money required for day to day maintenance of the same. A very important feature of this application is the fact that it checks for double registration of the vehicles that are registered in other part or State in the country.
