State Mission Mode Project

Road Transport


With a view to create a unified data schema which could be used by all the states for computerisation of their transport offices for issuing vehicle registration certificates and driving licences, Road Transport was included as one of the MMPs in the NeGP.

The implementation agency NIC developed a Smart card Operating System for Transport Application (SCOSTA) to ensure inter-operability of smart card RC and DL documents across the states & UTs. The development involved the implementation of two software VAHAN for vehicles registration activities and SARATHI for driving licence related activities in 24 and 16 states respectively.

This MMP is being implemented as part of the Horizontal Transfer Programme of DIT.
