The tweet says, “Considering rising COVID cases and recent DDMA guidelines, all appointments for DL & LL tests (fresh & existing) at all RTOs will be suspended from tomorrow (6/Jan/2022). Details for rescheduled dates will be sent to all applicants via SMS. We will extend validity of existing LLs.” All services will be provided at zonal offices in a Covid-appropriate manner, according to the statement. Commercial vehicle fitness checks will continue, with owners and drivers behaving in a Covid-appropriate manner. In the last 24 hours, Delhi has reported 10,665 new cases of COVID-19. There are already 23,307 active cases in the national capital, and these preventative steps will undoubtedly aid in public safety.
In light of the city’s escalating COVID-19 incidents, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) issued an order directing government employees engaged with non-essential services to work from home. It also ordered that nodal officers be appointed to monitor overcrowding on buses and Metro trains. In addition to their current responsibilities, the department’s enforcement employees will monitor public transportation vehicles for compliance with the DDMA directive.
