The Chhattisgarh Transport Department has started delivering the Smart Card-based Driving License (DL)and Registration Certificate (RC) to the citizens of Chhattisgarh at the address registered by them on the Transport portal for Vahan and Sarathi). On June 01, 2021 the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Chhattisarh, Shri Bhupesh Baghel launched this new facility in virtual mode. The event was chaired by Shri Mohammed Akbar, Hon’ble Transport Minister of Chhattisgarh.
In line with the Government’s prestigious Tumhar Sarkar Tumhar Dwaar scheme which is for home delivery of government services, the Transport Department is providing twenty two smart card-based services which include 10 driving license and 12 vehicle-related services ensuring door-to-door delivery through Speed Post.
Chhattisgarh became the first state in the Country to integrate the following Driving License and Registration certificate related services with Aadhaar for authentication:
Driving License(DL) related :
Change of address, Duplicate DL, Renewal of DL, Addition of Hazardous category to DL, Issuance of Badge, DL extract, Name change in DL, Surrender of any category, Replacement of DL, Issue of NOC and Issue of International Driving License.
Registration Certificate (RC) related:

Medical Form to be provided online for Driving License
Further, to bring transparency into the Transport Department functionality and to simplify the process of Driving License, the issuance of Medical Certificate - Form-1(A) has also been made online. For this, the interested Medical Council registered doctors of Chhattisgarh state are being provided with credentials to log into the Sarathi application. The registered doctors can use their credentials to view all the details of the DL applicants and issue the Medical Certificate Form-1(A) which can be instantly downloaded by the applicant from the Sarathi portal. This process eliminates paper work totally.
