The West Bengal government will soon make various transport related services online so that general public doesn't have to face hassles at regional transport offices. Services such as vehicle registration to learner license, will all be available online, state Transport Minister Snehasis Chakraborty said at a press conference. The government also plans to turn all state transport undertakings in the state fully environment-friendly by 2030 with the induction of 1,180 electric buses.

With this step, people will be able to do things from the comfort of their homes, helping both the general public as well as those in the transport business. "In a bid to do away with people's harassment at regional transport offices (RTOs), we have decided to make services from vehicle registration to learner license or permits available through online mode," Chakraborty said.
