Hyderabad: For the third time in a month, the tons pointed out online carrier competencies of the State Transport Department got here underneath a cloud, with ‘server problems’ once more throwing a spanner inside the works.
After reporting a comparable problem in late April and alternatively on May 6, all of the 56 online services of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) went offline across all of the 74 RTA workplaces in the State on Monday.
If it was a ‘technical glitch’ and a ‘brief circuit’ that had been named the villains on the previous events, this time it changed into a ‘hardware trouble’ inside the principal server at the RTA’s head workplace in Khairatabad.
The end result was the same as on the two preceding activities. Thousands of humans, who had booked slots and paid person charges for purchasing their work, ranging from getting a learner’s’ license to a vehicle’s fitness certificates, done online, misplaced each cash and precious time and had to go back home, with officers asking them to return once more on Tuesday.
Mohammed Amjed Ali, who got here from Yakutpura to renew his license to Khairatabad, said that there was no point of services being online if hundreds of candidates couldn’t avail any service. “When the department is gathering heaps of rupees as personnel costs, why should we go through for a technical hassle within the server?” he fumed.
Being the first day of the week, almost all the eleven RTA places of work within the city, mainly the ones at Khairatabad, Kukatpally, Nagole, and Trimulgherry, witnessed the general public in huge numbers, a lot of them getting annoyed and venting their anger at RTA constables.
A girl who came for termination of automobile hypothecation at Khairatabad said she had taken leave from paintings to be on the RTA office on time for the slot booked.
“I booked the slot few days again and took depart today to come back here. And I’m advised the online services are close down,” she lamented.
RTA officials in all of the offices have asked the candidates to return on Tuesday, assuring them that the server would be rectified straight away.
According to assets, the storage server is used for processing the online offerings has been on the venture from the 12 months 2000, while computerization started out in the Transport Department.
The server has emerged as old and can not take the weight dumped on it now, which became why it turned into growing snags quite often, sources said.
When contacted, Joint Transport Commissioner (IT & Vigilance), C Ramesh stated the garage server changed into old and that plans were on you got a new one, which can price over Rs 1 crore. Starting an online service is a great idea to build up a recurring, residual monthly income for any Internet business owner who’s worried about “how to make it happen again next month?” Before I get to what the best services can be and how to kick a service off, we need to get a few important formalities out of the way.
DOES YOUR IDEA LEND ITSELF TO CASH LOVE??
What I mean is, does the service idea you’re thinking about or an idea that you found online or through a friend, lend itself to repeatability. Will it be stable in a fluctuating consumer’s requirements? Can you wash, rinse and duplicate your work for the same or new customers and have them pay you regularly?
Answering these questions should give you a better idea of the sustainability of a service you might be considering.
> Is there a built-in need for ongoing support? Can you charge an amount regularly as a service-bill and have the consumer willing to allow it? [It should NOT be that once you solved a particular requirement, they don’t need you anymore.]
> Are the people who need this service available online in large numbers? If yes, are they easily reachable and willing to pay for your expertise?
> If consumers are reachable online, are there existing services in the same sector that do well? [Do you have competitors – COMPETITION ONLINE IS GOOD.]
