Despite backlog of over thousand RCs, RLA to launch new series
Sources in the RLA said that after the printer at the RLA crashed, a few months ago, the pendency of the registration certificates (RC) and licenses had reached 22,000 and 5,000, respectively. However, last month, the defunct printer was repaired and another for licenses was ordered. Despite, this, the RLA is yet to deliver thousands of RCs from the previous two series, CH 01 AN and CH 01 AP.
Many residents who had applied for registration certificates in August and September were informed that the documents would be delivered by January 2013, forcing them to drive their vehicles with temporary numbers, well past the deadlines for the same.
Registering and Licensing Authority-cum-SDM Parshuram V Kawle said, “We have already cleared about 80 to 85 per cent of the backlog. The defunct printer is now working, and a new printer has been installed to issue licenses. We are trying our best to clear all the pending RCs”.
RLA registers 200 to 250 vehicles on an average every day, but it doesn’t have an additional printer to replace the existing, in time of an emergency.
As the number of existing series ‘CH-01-AP’ is expected to exhaust in a few days, the RLA is gearing for auction of new series `CH-01-AQ’.
Another official of the RLA said, soon, we would start the booking
