Centralized Database for DLs and RCs

The road transport and highways ministry of India had issued notification making it mandatory for all states to follow the same norm for driver license and vehicle registration certificates from October 1, 2019. These documents will have QR code which can be scanned by the handheld device to get the complete information about these documents from the central online database thus making past violations impossible to hide. Also these documents can be easily validated.

The state governments can add additional features to the card like chip and NFC (near-field communication).
