The application's seamless automation allows for the swift submission of authorization applications to relevant officers at 29 locations, including DC Office, Divisional Commissioner, and FCR (State) office, adhering to specified conditions.

One of the standout features of this service is the user's ability to schedule a convenient visit to the chosen location after scrutiny of documents.
