    MS Chandru from New Delhi 1342 Days ago

    I need to renew my Driving Licence which is expiring on 14 Nov 2015. The licence was issued by New Delhi RTO (IP Depot) Authority as I was residing in Kasturba Ghandhi Marg. But my residence has since changed, and now I am residing in Safdarjung Enclave, ND 29. I understand Safdarjung Enclave falls under Southwest Delhi. Despite scanning all the web sites (both officially hosted and blogs) on this topic, I am left confused as to which RTO should I visit for renewal – is it Janakpuri or Vasant Vihar? (This confusion exits even in this site as both the places are mentioned for Southwest Delhi! To add to my frustration, there is no response on the tele nos provided either.) Pl sir, do clarify which RTO (Janakpuri or Vasant Vihar) should I visit to renew my DL? Normal 0 false false false EN US X NONE X NONE 0 0
