      Please login to your account at and then click on the reg link. Then you will see that whether ST2 has been issued or not. Fill in the proper date range.

      Also you need to yourself handover the printout of acknowledgement made and other supporting documents to range superintendent of your jurisdictional division. They don’t accept the documents via post.
