In an effort to provide a hassle-free experience at the road transport authority offices, the department is providing online services for the last couple of years. As part of its IT services, the transport department had recently started mobile wallet called ‘M-Wallet’ for the benefit of the motor vehicle owners.
According to the transport department officials, M-Wallet, the new mobile app helps vehicle users to store their documents related to vehicles in their mobile phones.
The M-wallet application is available on Android and IOS platforms. Users can login from any mobile to access the transport documents, vehicle related documents and citizen friendly options to add multiple vehicles owned by the same person and the single download option would save the documents permanently and be handy for future use.
The official said that those who download the app and store the documents can now show them to the traffic or RTA officials when they seek to check the documents.
“The response from the users has been positive as everyday 10,000 to 12,000 users are downloading the mobile app and till now 6.33 lakh users have downloaded the application,” said Joint Transport Commissioner (JTC) B Venkateshwarlu talking to The Hans India.
The JTC said that a team of transport department officials from Maharashtra had visited the RTA office recently with keen interest on implementing the system in their State. They wanted to check the system and also wanted to know the procedure, the JTC added.
“Even the NIC team had inquired about the innovative initiative of the government as they want to implement this system countrywide,” said Venkateshwarlu. Presently the M-wallet is implemented in Telangana. The NIC has data related to the entire country and NICs IT team is working on a better module.
