Now you will be able to drive your car/two-wheeler without carrying the physical copy of your driving licence and registration certificate. Thanks to the newly-launched service by the government called DigiLocker. The cloud storage system launched on Wednesday will enable users to store all their government documents in digital format.
The service was launched by Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Ravi Shankar Prasad in New Delhi. This will help in integration of mobile application DigiLocker with the driving licence and vehicle registration certificate. You just need to have an Aadhaar card linked to your cell number to open an account.
Driving Licences and Vehicle Registration documents can now be issued directly to the Digilockers of individuals in digital formats. These can also be shared with other departments for verification purpose.
Minister of Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad, said: “the integration will bring a paradigm shift in the vision of paperless governance. It will serve to bring agility and efficiency to the entire process of issuance of driving licenses and vehicle registration certificates through IT enablement.”
