If your license is expiring by 30th September and the date of test for permanent license is getting a little late then they are being given a big relief by the Delhi government. The government has decided that the validity of all other transport documents including existing driving license, fitness, permit will be extended till November 30. Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot says that this decision has been taken in view of the problems of the common people. He says that during the Corona period, the government is trying to provide maximum facilities to the people and reduce overcrowding. Other necessary documents including the license will remain valid for the next two months and the department will issue necessary orders in this regard.
A Delhi government official says that no guidelines have come from the Center to extend the validity period of the document, but the Delhi government has decided at its level that the document will be considered valid till November 30. This is a big relief for all those people whose driving license was expiring till 30th September and they were getting waiting after few days. Their license will now be valid till November 30 and during this time they can get their license made, renewed. Also, now there will be enough time to get the fitness of the vehicle done. Since last year when Corona started, the validity of documents is being increased according to the guidelines of the Central Government. However, this time the guidelines of the Center have not come yet and the Delhi government has taken this important decision.
Officials say that those whose driving license, permit and registration have expired after February 1, 2020, they can come for renewal of these documents till November 30. This deadline has been increasing continuously since February last year. Those who are worried about renewing their driving license or other important document due to expiry, then they will now get relief. The validity of the Learning and Permanent License expiring this month will continue for the next two months.
