Guys

Was wondering if anyone has tried to obtain a MASTER pass recently in BLR ?

Supplementary question is that if the DL is issued in another state, and the vehicle is bought in KA on the same person's name, Can one still obtain the Master Pass ?

Can anyone kindly confirm ?

Smile Ride free: no more side stops to check papers,

Bangalore: You could be in a hurry to keep an appointment and, besides the red signals and traffic jams, there is one other stop to contend with: men in white and khaki flagging down motorists to check vehicle documents. Well, having zeroed in on this traffic blockage of its own creation, the department has put a stop to such stops.

Additional commissioner of police (traffic) Praveen Sood has given written directions to traffic personnel against unnecessary checking of documents — to keep both road and motorist hassle-free. But this does not mean that the public should stop carrying vehicle papers.

Those who violate traffic rules will be stopped, their documents checked and duly penalized. Sood told TOI: “All officers have been instructed not to stop motorists merely for checking documents. Only when the motorist has committed some visible traffic violation will he/she be stopped. The police will ask for all documents and the motorist will be penalized for non-possession, if documents are not in order.’’

Sood clearly stated that the focus is on good road use behaviour rather than documents. “We are mainly concentrating on traffic violations and to maintain smooth vehicle flow,’’ he said. But commuters who have violated rules like jumping signals, drunken driving, entering one-ways, riding on pavements or riding without helmet will be stopped. Transport vehicles like buses, taxis and autorickshaws should carry permit and fitness certificate.
These should be produced for inspection if asked for by a police officer.

Sood explained: “There is a provision of a master card from RTO, which is proof that the driver has all valid documents. If one is carrying the master card, he/she need not carry any other documents.’’

But it is mandatory to carry an emission certificate. However, police have been instructed not to stop motorists merely to check the emission certificate. “In case of emission certificate, traffic police don’t have the provision to fine erring motorists. The department will have to send a notice regarding it to court. The fine amount is at the discretion of the court,’’ Sood added.

Do we need to get the MasterCard renewed every year, as we pay insurance every year.

Well, this mastercard is introduced by baramati rto way back in 2007.
It is card like pan/credit card. All data is stored in chip which is present in that card.
It costs rs 350 here but you have to surrender your original rc/tc book to rto. That card is really handy and fit in the wallet.
There is no provision to save data about insurance and emission. All your traffic crime can be recorded in that card by rto or traffic police for future reference.
There is no need to renew your mastercard every year for any reason other than validity.

Should be valid anywhere in India, as it contains the Govt of KA seal with emblem of India

No renewal is required for the same, as already mentioned. Yes, you may have to carry your original PUC and Insurance. I carry only the photocopy of Insurance

I assumed that mastercard is smart card.
As lambuhere has mentioned, mastercard is something like post card and smart card is like creditcard which is chip based.

Not many are aware of master pass.[ not mastercard ] You may need to take some time to visit them personally and meet the ARTO/RTO officer, or any knowledgebale persons [ old in the system ] to guide you the way.

For me, it took a couple of days to get the required information. Once I met the helpdesk, guided to the RTO office, met a officer there, got info, directed to meet ARTO, again got redirected to Superin of RTO. About fees, they dont have idea, again got directed to challan person who took the fees. Got it to RTO office

Filled application in a piece of paper, as mentioned in the thread below, submitted the photocopies of docs, after verification with originals and voila, got my Masterpass.

Yes, it does take time. For me it took more than 4 weeks, but atlast I got it

Inspiration and more information in the attached post
