Scores of residents visiting the regional transport office for submitting their permit and commercial vehicle tax fees are a harried lot these days as the authorities concerned have closed the offline mode of submitting the fees.

Besides, Vahan 4.0 software is showing error while submitting the fees through the online mode.

According to sources, the direction to close the offline mode of submitting the fees came from the state transport authority.

Sources said the software was not showing the update on quarterly tax paid in the past.

In other districts where Vahan 4.0 has been introduced, the RTA has made separate counters to update the visitors’ previously quarterly paid taxes.

On the other hand, visitors alleged that despite making several rounds of the RTA office for submitting commercial vehicle and permit fees, they had to return without getting their work done.

Hardeep Singh, a visitor, said, “As permit fee has not been updates in the software, I have not received the permit yet. As a result, I am facing loss in business.”

When contacted, RTA Udaydeep Singh Sidhu said, “I have already deputed employees to update the previously quarterly paid taxes on software Vahan 4.0. Besides, I don’t think there is any need to open separate counter for this.”

He added that as far as the permit fees are concerned, it is an ongoing issue in the entire state.

The matter has already been taken up and very soon the state government will come up with a concrete solution, he added.
