The Centre on Tuesday asked states to facilitate acceptance of driving licence and other documents like vehicle registration certificates in electronic format by enforcement agencies.

Vehicle owners can also show their documents like driving licence, RCs and insurance certificates through mobile apps like Digilocker and mParivahan app, the Road Transport and Highways Ministry said on Tuesday while issuing a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to states.

The enforcement agencies like traffic and transport departments can simultaneously access these details from eChallan app, which has data for online verification of vehicle and its licence status, it said.

The move is aimed at doing away with the handling of documents physically by enforcement agencies.

Citizens would also escape from harassment of the collection of documents after paying challans, according to the ministry.

People can produce the documents or other information either through the Digilocker app or the mParivahan app.

They can download the Driving Licence or the Registration Certificate through these apps and store on their mobile devices.
