    Applicants visiting RTA offices in Hyderabad are facing difficulties due to a lack of basic facilities, especially for women. There are no separate washrooms for women in RTA offices around the city, causing inconvenience for female applicants who visit for services like driver’s license and vehicle registration. The lack of toilets, waiting areas, drinking water, proper roads, and wheelchairs has been an ongoing issue that has not been addressed despite previous discussions.

    Around 500-600 applicants visit the RTA offices daily for various transportation-related transactions, but the absence of essential amenities like washrooms and drinking water makes it challenging for them. Social activist Mahmood Hussain Makke highlighted the lack of separate queues for women, seating arrangements, and wheelchairs for special aid individuals in RTA offices. Despite directives from the Joint Commissioner to provide basic facilities like separate toilets for women and drinking water, no improvements have been made so far.

    Female applicants at RTA offices express discomfort with shared washroom facilities and the lack of privacy. The absence of washrooms at most RTA offices forces visitors to use public facilities, leading to long waits and inconvenience. The General Secretary of the Telangana State Auto and Motor Vehicle Association pointed out that none of the 11 RTA offices in the twin cities have separate washrooms for women or basic amenities like separate queues and seating facilities.

    The Khairtabad RTA office, a major location in the city, also lacks separate washrooms and other necessary facilities. Despite being a significant revenue generator, the Transport department has not addressed the issue of inadequate amenities for female visitors in RTA offices.
