Accept DL, RC presented through DigiLocker: Centre

Citizens have raised the issue that the documents available in DigiLocker or the mParivahan app are not considered valid by the traffic police or the motor vehicles department when asked to produce.

The Centre has asked states to accept driving licence, registration certificate or other documents in "electronic form" presented through DigiLocker or mParivahan platforms.

"The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has issued an advisory to states to accept Driving Licence, Registration Certificate or other documents in 'electronic form' presented through DigiLocker or mParivahan platform as valid under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and treat them at par with the certificates issued by the transport authorities," according to the ministry's statement.

"The advisory clarifies that the DigiLocker platform of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and the mParivahan mobile app of the Road Transport and Highways Ministry has the facility to pull a citizen's driving licence or the registration certificate or any other certificate in an electronic form," the statement said.

This is in response to a number of grievances and RTI applications received in the ministry, where citizens have raised the issue that the documents available in DigiLocker or the mParivahan app are not considered valid by the traffic police or the motor vehicles department when asked to produce.

It also said that impounding of documents will be reflected electronically through 'eChallan" system.

"If the vehicle registration details on the mParivahan/eChallan app contain the details of the policy which is in force, then the requirement of a physical copy of the insurance certificate is also not to be enforced," it said.
