According to news reports, the Indian government is currently working on a new system that will allow drivers to just keep a soft copy of their driving license, instead of carrying their regular smart cards.
A driver would need an Aadhaar card to open an account and it would be then linked to his cell phone number that has been provided.
The ‘DigiLocker+’ service will also help the government maintain a centralised registry of all the vehicles and they can then easily access this information from anywhere in the country.
This will not only make the system faster but would also make it easier for Police forces to issue a fine to drivers or apply penalty points to defaulters driving licenses when they are found breaking the law.
