RTO Gujarat

RTO stands for the Regional Transport Office. As the name suggests, RTOs are regional offices that execute a lot of tasks around transport. Its parent organization is the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. RTOs maintain an index of all the drivers in India cross-referenced with their vehicles. Whenever a roadside footage shows a vehicle to be bypassing the maximum speed limit, the vehicle is photographed, the registration number is connected to the registered driver, and a penalty is issued. RTOs also issue driving licences - an important function, since rash driving can mean injury or worse for a lot of people. A Driving licence also does more than separate the skilled drivers from the unskilled drivers - it is used as an important identification proof in many government procedures and private deals.

Functions of Road Transport Department in GJ

The RTO Department in Gujarat carries out a lot of functions. Below are the three most important functions carried around by the RTO department:

  1. The Gujarat RTO enables the state government to collect an excise duty on vehicles. Vehicles are of no use to their owners without the roads that they run on, and 80% of all roads in India are built, maintained, and repaired by the state government. This is where decentralization comes in, the transport departments need to be regional. This is where the R in RTO comes from.

  2. Another niche service offered by the Gujarat RTO is that they sell individualized licence plates. The RTO allows people to buy expressive plates that are nevertheless standardized to fit the needs of the state. The revenue generated from these sales is used to polish the roads, bridges, and other infrastructure of the state.

  3. The RTO is also the organization in charge to ensure that the vehicles plying the roads are sticking to the emissions guidelines. The UN Panel on Climate Change has announced repeatedly that tackling climate change will need everyone to pitch in. To keep average global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees at the end of the century, we will need to drastically decrease green-house gas emissions from all sources, including vehicles. It’s government workers working in regional transport offices around the country - including in Gujarat - who ensure that vehicles are keeping their CO2 emissions to a bare minimum.

How to register a vehicle in GJ

Registering your vehicle in Gujarat is a simple and quick task. Follow the below steps to get your vehicle registered in the database of registered vehicles in Gujarat:

  1. Download a form called form 20 from the RTO website of Gujarat. You can find the form here. You will find an English version as well as a Gujarati version - fill up the form in the language you feel most comfortable with.

  2. Take the completed form to the local RTO office.

  3. A trained inspector will carefully evaluate the vehicle. This is usually not necessary as the authorized dealer, from whom the vehicle was purchased, does the inspection.

  4. After verifying all the details, the RTO office will release a unique registration number for you.

  5. The Registration Certificate of your vehicle will reach your address through speed post!

How to get motor insurance in GJ?

Along with registering your vehicle, obtaining a valid motor insurance policy is also mandatory. Here is a sobering statistic - in 2017, there were more than 50 road accidents in Gujarat every day, and more than 20 casualties. As the number of vehicles plying the roads grows exponentially every year, these numbers might get worse. Therefore, protecting yourself with insurance, apart from being a legal obligation, is also the practical thing to do.

Consider the following factors to ensure you get the best deal for your vehicle’s long-term insurance:

  1. The market is flooded with a lot of insurance options, both private and public. You should do in-depth research of different insurance providers. Owing to the easy availability of online motor insurance policies, comparing plans has never been easier.

  2. You should stack the premiums against the services offered. Lower premiums may not be ideal as they will come with almost no add-on services. A comprehensive insurance plan like Bajaj Allianz Motor Insurance, available on Finserv MARKETS, comes with perks like quick claim settlements and cashless claims in the network hospitals across India. In the long term, a comprehensive plan is better for your vehicle's longevity and your peace of mind.
