In order to make the public delivery system more transparent and people friendly recently Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha took a number of initiatives in this direction so that people of Jammu and Kashmir can get the administration at their doorstep.
Recently he said that issuance and renewal of the trade certificates of Automobile dealers of Jammu and Kashmir has also been made transparent and simplified through online mode.
Pertinently, Dealer-Point Facilitation of registration of the Non-Commercial vehicles in the UT of J&K by the Department has been widely hailed by the general public. Similarly, online services were launched to facilitate people with smooth and hassle-free services.
The Lt Governor stressed upon the need to make adoption of e-services wider and the prevalent way of providing services to the common man.
Highlighting the progress being made by Jammu and Kashmir in the transport sector, since 2015, the Lt Governor said that in March 2016, the number of drivers’ license holders crossed the 10 lakh mark for the first time. At that time, the number of registered commercial vehicles crossed the 2 lakh mark. At present, the number of all categories of registered vehicles in Jammu & Kashmir is well above 20 lakh.
He said that he believes that investments in roads infrastructure and transport facilities can help maximize the benefits of the overall growth scenario. Road network transports more than 60% of all goods in the country and 85% of India’s total passenger traffic. Jammu and Kashmir has become number one in Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana and our dream of linking each and every village with all-weather roads will soon turn into reality.
