Delhi nod to driving licence on DigiLocker platform
Motorists in the national capital need not carry their driving licence and registration certificate and can show these documents stored in the DigiLocker platform or the m-Parivahan mobile app when asked for by traffic police and the transport department.
DigiLocker is a cloud-based platform for storage, sharing and verification of documents and certificates.
Driving licences and registration certificates available in the digital form on the DigiLocker platform or the m-Parivahan app are valid documents under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, a notice issued by the transport department of the Delhi government said.
These are legally recognised on a par with the certificates issued by the transport department, the notice added.
“The traffic police and the enforcement wing of the transport department duly accept the electronic form of driving licence and registration certificate if shown in the DigiLocker and m-Parivahan app,” the notice said.
However, soft copies of driving licence and registration certificate maintained in any other form is not acceptable as original record, it clarified.
The electronic record of driving licence and registration certificate available on DigiLocker or m-Parivahan is also recognised as valid documents like the originals as per the provisions of the Information Technology Act, 2000, the notice stated.
