RLA: People hassled as forms go out of stock
Residents of the city visiting the Registering and Licensing Authority (RLA) for the past 10 days are a harassed lot. Reason: most of the forms including the ones for learner's licence, renewal of licence, renewal of RC, transfer within the state, and finance termination, are out of stock.
Consequently, the residents coming to the RLA for getting licences made have to go back empty-handed. Shubha, a resident of Sector 18, said, "I have come to the RLA today for the third time in past ten days for applying for a learner's licence. Each time, they told me to come two days later as the forms were out of stock. But today again it was the same situation. Why is not anyone bothered?"
Balbir, another city resident, who had come to get his licence renewed, also returned empty-handed. "It is so harassing to come here after leaving work, and then we are told that there are no forms," he said.
However, a senior RLA official said, "The forms went out of stock after there was a revision which was done in the checklist for the documents to be attached with the forms. Therefore, fresh forms with changes had to be printed. Most likely these will be available by tomorrow."
