Transport Ministry issues SOP for transport-related information presented in e-form
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued detailed Standard Operating Procedure-SOP for acceptance of Driving License, Registration Certificate and other transport related information presented in electronic form.
According to the amended Central Motor Vehicles Rules, carrying hard copy of relevant documents is not necessary now as they can be carried in electronic form. However, it is necessary that they are available on DigiLocker or mParivahan app to be legally recognized at par with the original documents.
As per the SOP issued by the Ministry, people can download the Driving License or the Registration Certificate through these apps and store on their mobile devices. The enforcement agencies can simultaneously access these details from eChallan app, which has data for on-line verification of vehicle and its license status. Off-line verification of mParivahan QR Code is also available on this platform.
