      Dear sir,
      With due regard, I may like to pen my nightmare at the hands of licencing authority, Dwarka sector10. I approached the venue for renewal of my DL and after depositing requisite fee, and undergoing finger print procedure, I was given a counter foil in support of my candidature. On 26th June, I got a message that my renewed DL under speed Post track no. ED056460175IN has been despatched. On twenty ninth, i, through tracking system got to know that instead of sending the cover for 110045,Palam,. It has been despatched to civil lines s.o. at 110054. The pincode obviously jumbled. Upon enquiry at authority, no one appears to be ready or owning responsibility. One has to spend entire day in huffing and puffing with no one around to redress the mistake they invariably commit to our suffering. I am 61, a dr. Citizen and feel less like some one cheating or talking down to me. It is embarassing. The so called busy with computer has no time for redressal. Kindly address the issue vigorously to my relief.

      Dear Minister,
      I was advised by Transport Authority, Dwarka to fill in forms online for renewal of my Driving Licence. Unfortunately, your portal is not functioning…the page opens with a message- ‘The portal is under maintenance’. I tried whole day but in vain. Now I am totally disappointed. I have least hope for help from your end. I am simply bringing “your efficiency” in your notice.

      Sir,With new buses coming I request some buses from peeragadhi to Rajouri garden via janakpuri district center, as all the buses go towards Uttam nagar, thanks

      message Sir, the Direct AC bus service, introduced by Delhi Govt. is a good step. But I have seen that on Janak puri to Nehru place route only 3 to 4 passengers or sometime 5-6 passengers are seen in the bus in the monrning. It seems that very purpose of running this service is not served. It would be better if passengers from the starting point to next 5-6 stops are also picked up. Earlier, from Lajwanti Garden bus stop, 14-15 passengers used to get in the DBusService, including some senior citizens whenever driver stopped the bus there. Now Direct Service buses are running empty but not stopped for passengers. We would be highly oblized if the DS bus services is made more usable than running empty. Thank you

      Dear Sir,
      With all due respect would like to share a solution for a common problem (Traffic jam)
      it has been observed that all the Auto Rickshaaw and DTC buses running in NCR don’t follow rules and regulation and there are no fines or charge on them they stop in the middle of the road for entry and exit of passengers ,run buses in overtaking lanes where speed limit is 60 km/per hour the drive on 30km/per hour and wont let other vehicles go causing slow traffic fights and nuisance on the roads ,if the government can take strict actions against all these buss drivers and Auto drivers there will be no traffic jam in the city

      would request you sir to please take your valuable time and take some decisions against the desired DTC buss drivers.

      warm regards
      Tushar sharma

      Dear Mr Gahlot,
      Greetings from my end. This is to share with you that I have been driving a private vehicle( car & 2 wheeler) from last 20 years. However, my driving license expired in November;2017 & I went for its renewal. However, during the renewal they declared me color blind as I could not pass the Ishihara test and told that I could not get the license until I read that complete book. I just want to seek your assistance that I have been driving with a valid license from last 20 years without any accident then how come I have become color blind now that I have not been considered right in getting a driving license. Hence, I seek your co operation in guiding me further so that I can get the driving licence. I am ready to give any driving test and if required any doctor can assess my capability of driving the vehicle. Also, I would like to inform that this test is not even asked in countries like USA wherein the laws are more strict & everything is based on the driving skill of the person. Kindly assist/guide me on this. Regards from my end.

      Legal reforms have been a laggard area when it comes to actual implementation of various schemes. Most schemes many of which are decades old have not been implemented till date despite recommendations by various bodies including Law Commission of India. Rest have not been implemented with right attitude or remained only on paper There seems to be a lackadaisical attitude and lack of political will when it comes to implementing legal reforms. I hope the new Law Minister would initiate legal reforms with right earnest and vigor and expand the scope and ambit of legal services for the people as well as young law graduates.
