    News About RTO in Himachal Pradesh

    • Himachal Pradesh mandates vehicle tracking system for passenger vehicles

      The transport ministry of Himachal Pradesh has made it compulsory for all passenger vehicles to install a vehicle tracking system or GPS, henceforth. Only those vehicle owners who abide by the rule will be given a registration certificate. With the idea to provide maximum safety to individuals travelling in passenger vehicles, the department has decided that only those vehicles that are fitted with tracking systems connected to the centralised vehicle portal of the Indian government will pass the fitness test.

      A regional transport officer of Himachal Pradesh, Bhuwan Sharma, stated that the tracking device, so fitted in the passenger vehicle, should be according to AIS 140. The system can be purchased from anywhere but it should meet the guidelines set by the transport ministry. The permit will be provided only if the guidelines are followed, GPS is activated, and connected to the centralised portal. He also said that the system will be powered by BSNL and connect to the transport department’s system. The official also added that the Kull RTO will start accepting cashless payments in order to bring about transparency in the system.
