Was able to get driving licencse from Mumbai RTO using RTI

Recommended Posts


So, I applied for a two wheeler endorsement to my four wheeler driving license in Dec 2011. I completed the driving test successfully paid the fee for the the smart card (I had the booklet format earlier), turned in the documents and my old booklet driving license. After 4 months the license smart card had still not arrived. I visited the RTO during this period, but was told that my data has not been entered into the system. Nobody was willing to give a date on when my data would be entered into the system or if there was any other problem. Finally, giving up, I filed an RTI request (attached with personal information removed). Promplty within two weeks, they sent a letter saying that my application is pending because I had not completed one formality of signing in the presence of some officer. They gave me a date and time to complete. this formality. I have completed the signature formality and expect to get my smart card license next week.


If you have applied to the RTO at Wadala, visit in person and check with a Mrs. Gaikwad (some officer in one of the cabins) prior to filing an RTI request. You might get your work done. If it does not yield the appropriate result, use the RTI route. Not sure about the contact person for other RTOs in Mumbai.
