Year 2022 is about to end. No doubt many things were not good enough after Corona. But RTO Ghaziabad has achieved a lot in this calendar year after new ARTO(Administration) Sri Rahul Shrivastava assumed the office of ARTO, Ghaziabad. The foremost and an important achievement is that RTO Ghaziabad has become second highest revenue earning district of the state in the present year.

When Sri Srivastava had been posted to Ghaziabad, it was so many important issues and priorities which were pending in pipelines from years, right from School buses issues including fitness, running of school buses without permit/fitness, Licensing issuing, transparency in conducting of driving test for various classes of vehicles, violation of traffic rules, regulations, overloading, permit violations, issues of RTO dalals/agents, free movement of Agents/dalals inside RTO Office on the tables of clerks, holding of official files by these agents/dalals, full functioning of all cameras already installed in RTO office and so many things which were there in the past.

In spite of so many issues, the RTO Ghaziabad has achieved a lot in this calendar year due to keeping of positive vision and constant hard work of staff personnel and all of the above said issues which were duly taken care at every level and the results have already started coming and subsequent changes and transparency has been seen in the day to day functioning of RTO, Ghaziabad.

City Electric Buses:-

The major achievement of Ghaziabad RTO can be described as running of City electric buses which are now catering the need of city transport services without pollution and these electric buses having 46 in numbers are catering to 5 routes run by Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam. Not only this, a major electric bus charging station has also been developed at Akbarpur-Behrampur, Vijay Nagar near National Highway 9(earlier24).

The RTO Ghaziabad has already issued a total numbers of 72976 driving licenses this calendar year which was only 49973 in the previous year. However, a record number of learner license have also been issued by RTO Ghaziabad which is a remarkable achievement till 28th December, a total number of 1,07,677 vehicles were newly registered at RTO Ghaziabad, which is also a record number of vehicles registered in the district.

A total number of 23,438 Driving licenses were renewed in the present calendar year which was 28,266 in the previous year. When Sri Rahul Srivastava had took charge as ARTO(Administration) running of school buses without due fitness/permit was a very important issue. Sri Srivastava listed out his priority about these school buses fitness test and almost every schools were sent notices for conducting of fitness of their school buses. After sending notices, the maximum school buses sent their school buses for appearing for fitness tests and now only 58 numbers of school buses could not appeared in fitness test which shows these school buses have either crossed the 10 or 15 years of life limit specified for diesel/Petro/CNG buses to be plying in Delhi-NCR region as per NGT judgment/guidelines and or these buses are not road worthy and hence not required for roadworthiness or fitness test. Earlier around 300 school buses were plying on roads of Ghaziabad without paasing fitness test. On the aspect of revenue collection, the RTO Ghaziabad is the second most earning revenue in the state of UP. This is again a remarkable achievement for RTO, Ghaziabad. On the issue of of starting E-rickshaw’s training Centre at Ghaziabad, a meeting of e rickshaw operators by ARTO(Administration) was convened and two proposals for starting of training centre for e-rickshaw operators have been forwarded. Hopefully, the issue of e-rickshaw operators has now been resolved and issuing of commercial license for e-rickshaw operators will soon be started once the proposal is approved by state authority, Lucknow.
