The Department is headed by a State Transport Commissioner and assisted by two additional state commissioners with unit offices which make the administration decentralized and closer to the people. These units are headed by district Vehicle Inspectors to ensure strict compliance to transport rules, registrations, licensing and payments etc.
The main objective of the Department is to combat road accidents which stem from untrained and unlicensed driving. Penalties are also meted out on individuals who flout traffic rules and regulations.
