Odisha: Submit Medical certificates online for driving licence


Cuttack, March 11: Now, the medical certificate of a person applying for issuance of driving licence or its renewal can be presented online rather than doing it manually, said an official release.

“It has been decided to accept medical certificate in form 1 (A) electronically under the 5T policy of the Government of Odisha to improve the ease of getting driving license and to have better user experience and to reduce footfall in RTO offices,” said a release issued by the State Transport Authority (STA).

Necessary facility has been provided in the Sarathi portal where Doctors can issue Medical Certificate directly which eliminates the process of submission of Medical Certificate and verification physically at RTO office, it said.

The doctors will be provided with ID and password to issue medical certificates 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 where in-license applicants can directly get medical certificates without hassle, it added.

To begin with this process will be optional, one can submit medical certificates online as well as offline. 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.
