Have you been worrying about losing your driving licence? Or forgetting it at home and being stopped by the traffic police? We may not want to be in breach of law necessarily but driving without your driving licence is a punishable offence. The good news is that now you can have a digital driving licence, which is considered equally valid.
This has been made possible through the DigiLocker or the mParivahan app. A statement1 issued by the Ministry of Road Transport notified all states to accept electronic versions of the documents as valid for such purposes. According to the statement, as long as the vehicle registration details are updated on the mParivahan/eChallan app, you no longer need the hard copies of even the insurance certificate.
This technology will not just make life convenient for you, but also create an added layer of authenticity in the documents! Under both the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 as well as the Information Technology Act, 2000, these digital formats are recognised as valid. So the next time you’re held up by the traffic police, you can simply show the electronic copies!
Let’s enumerate the benefits of adding your driving licence in the digital locker mParivahan/eChallan app:
Now you have a DigiLocker Driving Licence.
If you are required to upload a document on DigiLocker, the process is fairly similar as the one described above. Here’s how to upload driving licence in DigiLocker:
Having digital copies of important documents helps in emergencies, too. For example, if your car breaks down in the middle of the road, you’d ordinarily be stuck. At that point, you don’t have a lot of time to gather all the paperwork and get things in order. But if you have all documents in DigiLocker and have the Bajaj Allianz Car Insurance at Finserv MARKETS, you don’t need to freak out. Instead, you can just walk-in at one of the nearby network garages and get your car fixed.
The digital infrastructure is here to help you bring more convenience to your life. Make sure you make use of the DigiLocker portal or app and keep all your documents online so you can use them whenever there’s need!
