Transport Computerisation, Manipur


At the core of the Transport Project are two applications called Vahan and Sarathi. These are workflow based standardised software applications developed by NIC HQ to meet the objectives of Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) towards adopting standard data formats and software for vehicle registration and driving licences for use at the various District Transport Offices (DTO) located across the country and simultaneously build a National Register (NR) of vehicles and driving licences for providing e-services to citizens, officials and law enforcing agencies throughout the country. Vahan is for processing all transactions related to vehicles registration while Sarathi is for issuance of driving licence and related activities. Vahan and Sarathi have been implemented in all the 6 DTO offices Imphal West, Imphal East, Thoubal, Kangpokpi, Bishnupur and Churachandpur. Registration Certificates (RC) and Driving Licences (DL) are issued in Smart Card form. The process of issue of National Permit for inter-state goods vehicles has also been computerized through a web based application wherein payments are strictly online or through e-challans. Vahan has been selected by state government as the application for Final Acceptance Testing (FAT) of the State Data Centre. 2 MBPS leased lines have been commissioned to 6 DTO offices for the purpose.
