People will now be able to pay all kinds of motor vehicles taxes, fees and traffic fines through debit or credit cards in the offices of the State Transport Authority, the regional transport offices and also during spot checking by enforcement officials.
Now you can pay all kind of motor vehicles taxes, fees as well as fines digitally as the Odisha Motor Vehicle Department signed an MoU with HDFC Bank for e-collection of motor vehicle related revenues.
The MoU was signed between State Transport Authority (STA) Chairman and State Transport Commissioner Sanjeeb Panda and HDFC Bank Regional Head Debashis Senapati at the STA office in Cuttack.
As per the MoU, HDFC Bank will install 162 point-of-sale machines in the State Transport Authority and the regional transport offices. HDFC Bank will also provide 195 mobile e-challan devices to all the enforcement officers of the department.
“The mobile e-challan device has been integrated with SARATHI and VAHAN database to generate the on-spot VCR. All enforcement officials will be able to generate the VCR on the spot and collect the compounding fees through digital payment. The citizens will be able to pay the dues through credit and debit cards without any additional payment of convenience fee,” said transport commissioner Sanjeeb Panda.
