Carrying E-copies Of Documents While Driving May Soon Be a Reality

Meeta Sabnis Meeta Sabnis 09 July 2016

The Transport Ministry has proposed to consider soft copies of driving license and other essential documents for the verification while on the road.

To make public interface with the transport departments more user-friendly, the Transport Ministry has submitted a proposal to permit drivers and vehicle owners to carry soft copies of essential documents while driving on the road for verification by local law enforcement agencies. These documents include the Driving License, Registration Certificate of the vehicle and the insurance papers. The ministry believes that this move will make interaction between vehicle owners/drivers and the transport departments smoother and hassle-free.

The proposal also requests to modify the renewal window to one year as opposed to the current 30-day timeframe. This development is expected to avoid duplication of various formalities and also curtail cases of individuals driving without a valid license, a practice which is currently a significant threat. Necessary measures are being taken to streamline the online application process for the renewal of driving license.

Along with many other revisions such as a manifold increase in penalties if found driving without a valid license, the proposal also talks about stringent laws like mandatory helmets for kids above the age of four, if riding on a two-wheeler.

The officials are hopeful that this transformation will minimize the paperwork and will result in the efficient issuance of licenses resulting in better driving and safety on the road. The recommended changes are expected to come up during the monsoon session. Until then, let’s keep our fingers crossed!
