Bhubaneswar: Vehicle owners need no longer visit transport offices for paying their tax. They can do it online.  Commerce and Transport Minister Padmanabha Behera on Sunday launched e-check post for paying tax online. The portal was launched during the closing ceremony of the Road Safety Week.

Behera said even vehicle owners of other states can pay the tax online through the portal and download the permit instantly before entering Odisha.

“Vehicle owners can log on to the e-Checkpost portal from and deposit tax. The system will prevent them from visiting transport offices,” he said.

The e-Checkpost system has been introduced under the 5T charter of the State Government to improve ease of getting the permit for outside State vehicles and to have a better user experience after the abolition of border checkposts.

Behera said officials have been asked to be more strict in implementing the new traffic rules to increase the level of road safety and ensure stronger punitive measures against violators from March 1 once the relaxation period is over in February.

He ruled out any possibility of reduction in fines imposed under the Act. He said helmet for pillion rider and rear seat-belt in four-wheelers is mandatory too.
