On Wednesday, June 9, the automobile dealers' body, the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA) stated that the decision undertaken by the Maharashtra government to make vehicle registration faceless and paperless will making the vehicle-buying process easier besides promoting convenience.

Earlier, the FADA was persistently engaged in a dialogue with the state transport department for the implementation of the new rules which were notified by the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways on Tuesday, it said in a statement.

According to reports, the notification allows online submission of documents for the registration of vehicles. Besides, no physical verification will be required for the first registration of new fully-built motorcycles and cars. Furthermore, it permits all document to be e-signed by the dealers using digital signature as well as auto-generation of vehicle ordinary numbers at the dealerships itself, FADA informed in a statement.

On the other hand, the Maharashtra Government had earlier announced the Electric Vehicles (EV) Policy 2021, which is to be aimed at ensuring that electric vehicles account for at least 10 per cent of all new vehicle registrations by the year 2025. Officials familiar with the matter said that this policy will see the switching of fuel-based government vehicles with electric vehicles (EVs) starting in April 2022 across major cities of the state. The draft of this policy is currently waiting for approval from the State Cabinet.

The information was provided during a webinar held by the State Environment Department’s Majhi Vasundhara Abhiyan accompanied by Climate Voices as part of a consortium of three advocacy groups working across the country.
