Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday launched 9 online services of the State Transport Authority (STA) under 5 T initiative, making the transport offices paperless.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said the freedom to choose any transport office of the state for vehicle related services will be a kind of liberation for thousands of people. The long queues in front of transport offices will soon be a thing of past, he hoped.
