Panchkula: To make the process of registration of vehicles simpler to save the public from harassment at every end, the Transport Department through its project in collaboration with the National Informatics Centre (NIC) has launched its own software, “Vahan 4.0”, to get the entire work of vehicle registration done online at the dealer’s end. However, the newly launched online vehicles registration process at dealers’ end has turned sluggish within a week of its implementation.
Unfortunately, the project which was launched from February 22 in the district has now been facing various software snags. There are around 25 two wheelers and four-wheeler agencies in the city which were being upgraded with the new software last week. To this, residents of Panchkula are fuming over the situation as they have left with no other option than of visiting the E-disha centre as before.
Chander Sharma, manager of a four-wheeler agency in Sector 8 said, ‘’We have not received ID and password to operate Vahan 4.0 software following which the work related to registration certificates of vehicles has not been initiated. The management has asked the concerned authorities about the same and from next week the process will be commenced properly.
The project has been launched in Panchkula following registration of a vehicle so as not even a single visit to the transport office will be required. The system has been launched as a pilot project in Panchkula, before being implemented across Haryana.
Panchkula Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Jagdeep Dhanda told, ‘’As the software has been launched, the registration process of the vehicles will now be done at the dealers’ end, shortening the queues at E-disha centre. As the system has recently been launched; the same will be executed properly within few days.’’
When a vehicle will be sent to a dealer, the manufacturer will push along all data such as engine number, chassis number and date of manufacturing etc. The dealer will have to only enter the registration number along with the buyer’s details. This will prevent human error in manually entering data and bring in transparency by preventing any corruption at the transport office.
