Coinciding with the joyous occasion of the 11th Royal Wedding Anniversary, on 13th October 2022 the Ministry of Information and Communications launched the following online systems and the Annual Report of RSTA 2021-22:

1. eRaLIS 2.0

The Hon'ble Minister, Ministry of Information and Communications launched eRaLIS 2.0 to enhance public service delivery of RSTA. e-Registration & Licensing Information System (eRaLIS) v 2.0 is the enhancement of the existing database system aimed to  improve reliability, scalability, fault isolation and improve service delivery.The enhanced system has been rolled out on trial basis since August this year with the option to  use QR code or online payment system. The enhanced  mRSTA app updates will also be soon available in both the Play and App store.

2. Web-based GPS system for passenger buses

The web-based GPS system for passenger buses was also launched today. The development of a web-based GPS system and installation of GPS in the passenger buses is intended to promote and enhance the safety of passenger bus service in the country. A web-based GPS system would not only help in monitoring the safety of passenger buses on a real-time basis but also provide required information such as road-block, passenger bus breakdown, route-deviation and traffic violations of a particular bus plying along a particular route. This would also promote disciplined driving culture of public transport drivers which would eventually gain better trust from the public availing public transport services.

The citizen portal will be made available on the RSTA website, once the user training and the installation of the GPS is completed for all the passenger buses.
