    Recent Trends of Pune RTO

    • Earlier this year, the Pune RTO said that they will conduct driving tests on Sundays as well as public holidays so that they can push out maximum number of applicants. Due to the high number of pending applicants, new applicants were being given slots nearly 2-3 months from the day they made the booking. The new rule was implemented from 10 March 2019 onwards.
    • The mayor in Pune, Mukta Tilak, announced a road safety programme, on 28 February 2019, that will be conducted for three years to reduce the number of road traffic accidents by 30%. A core committee was formed comprising PMCs from the road and electrical departments, PMPML, Pune traffic police, RTO, and five NGOs. Each entity has been given a responsibility with respect to the programme. The role of the RTO is to get driving schools to instruct new drivers to respect pedestrians and follow traffic rules diligently.


    It is important for every new vehicle owner to get his/her vehicle registered at the nearest RTO. RTOs sometimes give a temporary registration and then provide a permanent registration. Only those who have registered their vehicles and have valid driving licences are permitted to use vehicles on the road. Also, every car or bike owner is required to get a vehicle insurance plan for their vehicle. Failure to follow any of the rules will lead to penalties that are to be paid to the traffic police.

    • Maharashtra: HSRPs on vehicles manufactured from April 1

      As per a notification issued by the state transport authority, all vehicles manufactured after April 1, in the state of Maharashtra, will have High-Security Registration Plates. Car dealerships have been given the responsibility to fix the HSRPs on cars that will hit the roads after April 1. Each car manufacturer would have tied-up with certain HSRP manufacturing companies that will provide the required licence plates to the dealers, on request. The licence plates will be made as per the standards set by the central transport ministry.

      The central government has mandated HSRPs for new vehicles i.e. vehicles manufactured after April 1 only and has left it to the respective state transport departments to decide whether the same should be implemented on cars running on roads at the moment. No official notification has been sent with respect to cars that are already on the roads. While officials wait for the notification from the ministry in order to put a plan of action in place, they urge individuals who own cars that are on roads already to contact their dealers and get HSRPs in advance even before the notification is received.
