People going to Registering and Licensing Authority in Sector 17 faced a hard time today after a power snag led to shutting down of all services. The power supply shut down in the afternoon after which no work could be undertaken. Residents of the city who had to apply for licenses and registration certificates could not do so as the applications could not be accepted. With the server being down no work could be undertaken. The applicants were forced to sweat it out in the sweltering heat hoping for the problem to be rectified.
A resident of Sector 22 said that the he had come to the RLA for applying for an RC,but could not do so. While I waited for some time,but with the snag not being rectified no work took place. I would have to come again on Thursday. The whole day was wasted because of the problem, he said.
The RLA is already facing a backlog when it comes to giving RCs. While the procedure of providing RCs is supposed to take one to two days,the residents are being time up to two months. The snag could increase the backlog.
On Monday,High Security Number Plates were also launched in the city. The RLA is still in the process of ironing out the teething troubles that the scheme is encountering. The applicants were a harassed lot today.
The RLA should have a proper back up system in place. Work should not come to a halt due to power snags, rued Ram Kumar,a resident of Sector 19.
Work to rectify the problem was on till late at night at RLA. An official of RLA said that the fault was being repaired and the server would be functional by Thursday. He informed that the power supply shut down in the afternoon and process for repairing started then.
