Learner's driving licence test is being computerised in India's capital city – New Delhi. The system was introduced at the new zonal transport office at Vasant Vihar in south-west Delhi. Transport Minister Haroon Yusuf innaugurated the system.
Speaking on the initiative, the Minister said, “The concept has been taken from Ahmedabad, where this particular model is already in use. Ten computers have been installed at the office for this system.”
Such computerisation will increase the efficiency and accountability helping in making the process more transparent. The implementation of the actual system will take around 10 days. It is expected to start in other zones as well.
It is said that there will be a bank of 250 questions for the test and the applicant will get 20 randomly selected questions. The applicant will receive the result as soon as he / she replies to the 20th question.
After opening the new zonal transport office, the total number of zonal transport offices in the capital has reached 13.
