Cuttack: As the transport vehicle owners are filing off-road application online during late night up to 23.59 hours on the last day of a month and as the RTOs are unable to approve such off-road application in VAHAN on that date leading to complicacy, the STA has modified its order dated 16.07.2020.
The State Transport Authority (STA) in its order today has mentioned, “Considering difficulties faced by RTOs, in modification of order dated 16.07.2020, it is instructed that the application for non-use (off-road) and non use continuation (extension of off-road) has to be in VAHAN portal (www.parivahan.gov.in) and has to be made by 12 noon of the last day of month. Any application made after 12.00 noon will not be considered.”
Notably, facility has been provided to owners of transport vehicles to submit application for non-use intimation (off-road intimation) and non-use continuation (extension of off-road) in online mode. The vehicle owner can declare his/her vehicle off road and further extension in online mode in VAHAN portal (www.parivahan.gov.in) without visiting Regional Transport Office (RTO).
