Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government has decided to open additional counters in RTOs to facilitate the issuance of driving licenses.

Besides, additional pollution testing centres will be set up and rate charts will be displayed so that the middlemen would not rule the roost, informed Transport secretary G Srivanasan.
