Hard Copies Of Documents Including Driving Licenses Are No Longer Required

To enhance the convenience of drivers, the central government is going to digitize the documents of vehicles including driving licenses. From October 1, 2020, these documents can be uploaded on the Information Technology Portal and do not need to be accompanied by physical documents.

Hard Copies Of Documents Including Driving Licenses Are No Longer Required

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement that the traffic police will no longer be able to demand physical documents. It may be mentioned that the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways had recently amended the Central Motor Vehicle Rules 1889.

According to the change in the rules, the driver will be able to use the mobile phone to see the route while driving. However, mobile phones can only be used to view the route. Talking on a mobile phone while driving will be considered a crime and a fine of Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,000 will have to be paid for it.

The tension of keeping hard copy of documents like driving license, registration certificate, fitness certificate, permit with the vehicle will now be removed. The vehicle can now be driven with a softcopy of these documents. This soft copy will be considered fully valid during the investigation.

The government has said that from October 1, 2020, all documents, including driving licenses and e-currency, will be maintained through an IT portal. The web portal will also keep records of offenses like e-currency including suspension, compounding and revocation of license and registration.
