Have you purchased a new bike or car recently? If yes then surely you might have observed these things from the showroom and also from the RTA Office.
If you go and take a quotation from the dealer, they give us some basic quotation for us which says about the Ex-showroom price and the complete on-road price of the vehicle. But if you look keenly there is also a column with name RTA support for which they charge Rs.900 for bike and Rs. 1500 to Rs2000 for the car.
Why do we need to really pay for when we are paying everything online, everyone who can book a ticket online can easily register a slot at RTA website of Telangana but still why we are choosing the RTA support option from the dealer?
Here are the reasons, if we go directly to the RTA without broker or so-called support specialist, RTA staff will reject our application saying that address proof in the temporary registration certificate is not same as the address proof you provided, or they will ask you an updated address proof which was taken in the current month.
A techie from Madhapur had taken his vehicle for registration, surprisingly they asked for the ex-showroom price sheet of the vehicle, which is not listed either in the website or the notice boards which should be placed at the RTA office and troubled him asking to bring that from showroom and obviously there will be difference on the price sheet from the date of purchase to now, finally he has to approach the broker to finish this process. another instance of Licence at kondapur Hyderabad RTO without a test drive can even depict how the things are going on.
Automation of RTA services is all well and good, but when it comes to document verification, the staff from RTA are taking advantage of demanding bribes from the people.
There will be many services from RTA, Registration, Hypothecation removal, Fitness Test, Driving Licence test. End of the day things will go smoothly if we go through a broker and it will be a hell for the normal people who want to avail these services by themselves.
In the above scenario vehicle showroom dealers are indirectly supporting the corruption in the RTA office.
