Good move. In Telangana we already have an app called RTA m-Wallet where you can get your RC and drivers licence which is accepted by authorities. If its done across the country its even better.

Talking about Digilocker, I recollect a thread about it few years back. Here's (National DigiLocker to carry your driving licence & RC book) one you can look at where we have had all the discussions.

My biggest worry - The acceptance for these soft copies of all the originals. The kind of cops we encounter throughout the length and breadth of our country, we have seen enough instances where they are so hellbent on rejecting something that they are not used to seeing.

I sincerely hope that this time its different.

Karnataka is not too far behind. A look at (National DigiLocker to carry your driving licence & RC book)this post will give us an idea about the Government's endeavours in this regard.

Also, for the scheme to be succesful, the general public needs to be made aware of the exact meaning of digital documents. Though the idiosyncracy of this non acceptance is debatable, a scanned, photographed or screenshot copy of a DL/RC for instance, cannot be considered a valid alternative for original documents as per law.

Recently, I had purchased an unreserved ticket using the UTS app of Indian Railways and saved the ticket as a screenshot. While exiting the railway station, a ticket checker asked me for the ticket and when I showed him the screenshot, he insisted that I log in to the app and produce the ticket live .

Awareness about digilocker among the lower and mid level officials - the ones who are actually on the street - is the key to success of this mission.

They took a long time to get chip based DL and even HSRP, very long time actually .

OT but I too had experienced the glitch with UTS. I was at Yeshwantpur station to receive someone and the station was super crowded that Saturday afternoon and the queue for platform ticket was simply looking awful.

I Googled then and found out about this App. Installed and created by account too. The UI felt nice that it automatically picked my location (station) based on my GPS and gave option to purchase unreserved ticket or a platform ticket and when I chose latter and proceeded to payment screen it simply didn't move beyond that. I remember it had an option to pay from the app wallet too but the app felt miserably slow! Somehow I managed to just walk out without getting caught by the TTE.

In general, as you mention, we need education among the scrutinisers than the public who will use these.

It is also mentioned that fitness certificates for freight vehicles should be renewed every two years. The current rule makes it mandatory to renew the certificate annually.
That is my only worry! Everything else looks good if enforced and accepted universally across the country.

But, what is the logic behind changing fitness certificate renewal from annual to once every two years? Are all our freight vehicles now so very well maintained that they need to get an FC only after another 12 months? If yes, well... Wow.

While others have rightly pointed out the challenges with the advent of this new convenience, what concerns me is this:

Coupled with the revision of per axle load capacity, this might make our highways yet more lethal. These vehicles are already in a state of heinous disrepair - now that's going to be twice as bad, presumably.

You can download your vehicle RC & DL details electronically. Till recently this app had difficulties in retrieving the DL info into the app. When I tried the same few days back I could download it and store it in my mobile. The difference that I see between these two is 'QR Code' which is found in mParivahan app.

The App says we van create the virtual RC & DL, but the acceptance of the same is a big question in majority of the States. However we can hope that we are moving towards it.



In mParivahan App, you can download the RC / DL details even when there is name mismatch between these two. My name was not typed-in fully, so even now digitally I can see only my partial name in my RC info, although I corrected the details in physical Certificate. For DL it asks for DOB, if you want to store it in App.
Using both of these apps since a month. DigiLocker is good but seems to have limited use. I could download only the RC where car is in my name but the company cars RC's cannot be downloaded as it is Aadhar based. However I could download all RCs in mParivahan. However in mParivahan, the DL doesn't seem to be working right now, couldn't download it. Worked in DigiLocker though.

Digilocker is Aadhar based App. If your DL is linked with Aadhar the same will be automatically downloaded in your App.

Try refreshing the tab "issued document"

It may also happen that, the concerned RTO did not upload your DL detail in digital platform. In fact the renewed detail of my DL appeared in Digilocker after one year of renewal date.

Have you tried issuing the DL from Ministry of Road Transport and Highways? I was able to successfully pull the document into DigiLocker when I used that option. DigiLocker failed to download the data when I selected Karnataka Department of Transport.

Ensure that the name on license matches Aadhaar as DigiLocker is based on Aadhaar and verification of data is done before fetching. Not sure why DigiLocker is unable to issue documents from Karnataka Department of Transport.

I was able to link both my Driving License and Registration Certificate today. The format of my DL number is KA05YYYY00XXXXX.

Default Re: National DigiLocker to carry your driving licence & RC book

I have created a digiLocker account and was successful in linking my Aadhar and DL. The vehicle I drive is registered in my name of my wife. SO I downloaded the RC in her digiLocker and then downloaded the document in PDF. This now I have uploaded in to my wallet.

Going forward I am always going to carry original but would show digiLocker to cop if demanded. Let's see if these are accepted or not. I suspect that they may be initially hesitant but over a period things will become more widely acceptable.

I recall a long time back when card licenses were issued many upcountry cops did not accept them and insisted on DL Book. But now it's universally accepted.

I have also lodged a public grievance for insurance companies to also come on to digiLocker. From my app I see New India Assurance is already there. This way even the RC and PUC could be (and should be??) digitised.

Transitions are always going to be coming along with hiccups.

I was able to import my DL, and RCs for both cars to the Digilocker. I used these digitally signed PDFs to apply for a FASTTag online.

That said, I am not sure if a cop will accept these digital copies. Better to carry the DL and RC just in case especially on long distance trips.

As for Std X and Std XII passing certificates and mark sheets, well, the Digilocker can fetch records going back to 1990. My records go back further than that.

I managed to download my new Vehicle RC (TN 07) yesterday. Registration was done on 31.07.18. Also managed to download my Delhi issued Driving licence from 2006 in the app. Pretty useful i think
