Soon, the residents of Noida will be able to check the status of their driving licence application online. Noida’s transport department is planning to introduce a tracking system for the pending applications in the next two months.

He also informed that the department has engaged a software engineer for developing a tracking system for the same. The system is expected to be ready by June this year.
Currently, people can apply online for a driving licence and even fix an appointed for the issuance of licence online. Once, they file an application, a slot is booked.
The officer said that as soon as the device is ready, applicants will be able to check the status sitting at home. They wouldn’t need to come to office to know the status of their applications.
The tracking system will have feature of checking the application at every stage. It will tell them whether the licence has been finalised or is yet to be done. Is it pending at any stage?
The upcoming device will also bring transparency. If the application is pending with an officer from the department, the applicants will be able to check the reason for delay.
It will also curtail unauthorised activities by agents, who sometimes ask money from applicants to ensure early dispatch of driving licence.
