Details  Difficulty  Licenses granted to auto workshop had a validity period of just one year and auto-workshops had to get it renewed every year. This short validity period and yearly renewals place extra cost and compliance burden on the SMEs involved in the auto workshop business.  
Analysis  It was found that Motor Vehicle Rules, 1969 state that the auto workshop licenses are valid for only one year and the time period for validity may be increased. To revise this the amendment in the Motor Vehicle Rules was required.  
Solution  In line with the reform proposal, Transport and Mass Transit Department has extended the validity period of auto workshop license from 1 to 3 years by amending the Rule 35 A, sub-rule (3) of Motor Vehicle Rules, 1969.  
Evidence  Amendment- Auto Workshop License for 1 to 3 years
