I am a Software Engineer working in Bangalore City. Currently I am doing WFH. But I am not able to work from home because my native place is in Azamgarh UP and due to network, electricity issue I can't work there.
So I request you to give some focus on digitise villages also so that we can also work from home from my village.

So I have applied for KT RTO office for renewal (as it is required). I have applied for renewal of my DL through online payment in Karnataka RTO.I have received
But when I went the office directly to submit all the documents, they are refusing to take & asking for NOC. All data are showing in system then why NOC required? They are harassing.

The policy should Try to emphasize the use and development of open source software with no central controlling figure. This would not only allow smaller start ups to go against big corporations on an equal footing but also increase reliability of the said software. If the software used is open sourced it would also reduce the instances of malicious code being added to software without being unnoticed.
