Soon, there would be no need to carry physical copies of your driving license or vehicle documents. The transport & IT ministries will roll out a cloud based document storage application dubbed as DigiLocker where owners can store e-copies of the driving license, insurance copies, registration certificate, etc.
Soft copies could be easily stored on the cloud using the app and in case you are stopped by the traffic police at check points, you can easily produce the documents on your smartphone.
A user must have a valid Aadhaar card to open an account on the DigiLocker app.
Verifying officers will also need to have this app installed. Also, penalty points can be added via the app for traffic violation.
This digital initiative is expected to be launched today.
