In his letters read above, the Transport Commissioner has stated that the computerization in Transport Department has been already started and going on in a phased manner. Presently third phase is nearing to completion. In all the computerized Regional Transport Offices and Unit Offices, important transactions such as issue of Learners Licences, Driving Licences, Registration of vehicles, Permit, etc are being completed and despatched to the applicants then and there. These systems once introduced with huge capital investment, would have to be maintained, which also requires funds. Though these services are rendered on a fast track basis, no separate fee other than the fee prescribed either under the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989 or under Tamil Nadu Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 for the transaction is now collected. 3. The Government of Andhra Pradesh have issued orders for collection of service charges besides normal fees prescribed in respect of transaction undertaken in Transport Department of those States. The Transport Commissioner has therefore suggested to bring a similar concept of levy of service charge and to levy service charges for, transactions undertaken/services rendered in Transport Department in this State also. He has proposed various rates of service charges in respect of various transactions done in Transport Department and requested that the service charges suggested for collection may be allotted to Transport Department for the creation / development of infrastructures, improving the quality of -2- Services such as for the construction of buildings, provision and expansion of link up facilities (computerization) and to provide sufficient vehicles for mobility, communication facilities, etc.,. 4. The Government have examined the proposal independently and in detail. Computerized services and e-governance initiatives for the benefit of the consumers to render quick and hassle-free services in the Transport Department has been implemented by the Government at a substantial financial outlay. These initiatives have resulted in drastic reduction in time and effort in the issue of Learners Licence, Driving Licence, Registration of Vehicles, issue of Permit, etc., when compared to the traditional method. If the vast infrastructure has to be maintained to sustain the effective hassle- free services, it is absolutely essential to collect Service Charges. Hence the Government have decided to accept the proposal of the Transport Commissioner. Accordingly, the Government approve the rate of service charges proposed by the Transport Commissioner, as specified in the Annexure appended to the G.O. and accord permission to the Transport Commissioner to collect the same. 5.
