By admin |

2nd April 2008

By Pravin  Prashant Patna: To provide people of Bihar an integrated pro-active transport system, the Transport Department of Bihar is planning to computerise all its district offices and regional offices within the state. "Plans are to automate 47 offices across Bihar comprising of 38 district offices and nine regional offices," Bihar Transport Secretary-cum-Transport Commissioner KK Pathak said. He further added that the automation will help in issuing tamper proof smart card licenses to vehicle owners. The computerised system will help in providing services like registration of vehicles, tax collection, and issuance of drivers and conductor's licenses with the click of a mouse. The computerised system will also help in providing higher levels of services to the end consumer vis-a-vis manual system. According to Pathak, the Transport Department has chalked out plans for a phase wise implementation of the project. In the first phase, plans are to conduct a trial in Patna by the end of April. In the second phase, automation will cover all the commissioneries, while in the third phase all districts will be covered. The state government has allocated Rs 3.5 crore for the automation of transport department. The Transport Secretary said that National Informatics Centre (NIC) is implementing the project and Vahan and Sarathi software is presently being fine tuned to meet the local requirement.
