The research arm of Ministry of Railways India, Research Designs & Standards Organisation (RDSO) on has launched a New Online Vender Registration System. The motive of newly launched system is to make systems and procedures digital and more transparent.
The new system was launched after Minister of Railways & Coal, Shri Piyush Goyal took a review of the current functioning of RDSO. With major improvements and paradigm changes in the registration system, the new system is much more capable than the earlier.
Below are the main featured of RDSO new system:
Now vendor will not need to visit RDSO personally for any activity regarding the registration of his case.
There will be strict time limits related to the vendor registration cycle. If the activities of RDSO takes more than the allotted time, an alert to the concerned RDSO officials and their higher officers will be generated by the system to take the appropriate actions on immediate basis.
With the introduction of New system, now document scrutiny & physical verification will be done simultaneously which was not the case earlier. In earlier system it was 8 to 11 months gap between documents scrutiny and physical verification of the Vendor’s facility because the physical verification was started only after the completion of documents scrutiny. So the with new system things are expected to happen faster.
Now the vendor will be able to perform all activities online such as deposit registration fee, submit documents, download technical drawings & specifications and interaction with RDSO.
Vendors now will be able to register for any of the item throughout the whole year. It will provide wonderful business opportunity for growth of new SMEs thus create the jobs.
Every information and data related to the system such as cases of vendor registration and all references pending at RDSO has been uploaded on on RDSO website for public.
