The Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) in Odisha will no longer accept manual medical certificate from persons applying for driving license (DL). As per the State Transport Authority (STA), the entire process of medical certificate required by a person to apply for driving license or its renewal can be done online.

It is pertinent to mention here that it is mandatory for any person above 40 years of age who wishes to get a driving license or those going for driving license renewal to produce a medical certificate under the form 1 (A) as per Motor Vehicle Act.

As per STA, medical certificate in form 1 (A) can be submitted electronically under the 5T policy of the Government of Odisha. The move is expected to improve the ease of getting driving license and will reduce footfall in RTO offices.

The STA, in a release, said, “Necessary facility has been provided in Sarathi portal where Doctors can issue Medical Certificate directly which eliminates process of submission of Medical Certificate and verification physically at RTO office.”

As per the process, the doctors will be provided with an ID and password to issue medical certificate through the portal. They will have to upload the applicant’s certificate on the Sarathi portal. This will ensure no one can upload a fake medical certificate to get a driving license. In order to make the whole system transparent, the portal is launched wherein license applicant can directly get medical certificate without hassle.

To begin with, this process will be optional, one can submit medical certificate online as well as offline, the release added.
