Digitization is a must in today’s situation regarding the safety measures. It has made form filling process easy where you can fill your own form at home without hassle of being in queue for hours.

But, for long time now, due to overflow of traffic in official site, users has not been able to submit online registration form for acquiring license, which is really frustrating. You can submit it between 6-10AM in the morning. As seen on past, the form fill up quota used to quickly exceed. That’s why applicants had to fill it quickly in first hour. As of now, the website isn’t responding for the most part and even down for some time. Regarding the effort of government, DOTM published a notice regarding site server upgrade on 2077-09-20 but that doesn’t seem effective for now.
