With this integration people will no longer need to carry around physical copies of their RCs and DLs, the release added.
According to the PIB report, people can instead access digital copies of the same on their mobile phones via the DigiLocker mobile app.
Moreover, DLs and Vehicle Registration documents can now be issued directly to the DigiLockers of individuals in digital formats and these digital copies can be shared with other departments as identity and address proof, the release said.
Further, these documents will also be used for on the spot verification via the citizen’s mobile, by various law enforcement authorities like the Traffic Police.
Besides being convenient for people, this will also result in assured authenticity of such documents and reduction of administrative overhead.
