The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has issued detailed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for acceptance of driving licence (DL), registration certificate (RC) and other transport related information presented in electronic form. 

The Central Motor Vehicles Rules amended by the MoRTH in November 2018 enables production of documents such as certificate of registration, insurance, fitness and permit, the driving licence, certificate for pollution under check and any other relevant documents in electronic form.

With this revision of rules, it is now not necessary for people to carry the relevant paper documents. 

However, for the electronic documents to be treated as legally recognized at par with the original documents as per the provisions of the Information Technology Act, 2000, it is necessary that they are available on DigiLocker or mParivahan app carried by the user. 

If the e-documents are not available on mParivahan or DigiLocker then they would not be treated as legally recognized at par with the original documents.

The mParivahan mobile app is being provided by the MoRTH through NIC. The details of RC, DL, fitness validity, insurance validity, permit validity are available on real time basis on this mobile app by entering the DL number/ registration number pertaining to the vehicles.

The DigiLocker platform of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has the facility to pull a citizen’s DL or the certificate of registration details from VAHAN and make it available in the Digilocker App in an electronic form.

The data related to the insurance of new vehicles and renewal of insurance of vehicles is reflected on the eChallan app that is available only to enforcement officers.

As per the SOP, people can produce the documents or other information either through the DigiLocker app or the mParivahan app. They can download the DL or RC through these apps and store on their mobile devices. They can also show particulars relating to DL or vehicle through the mParivahan app on the mobile through internet connectivity. 

The enforcement agencies can simultaneously access these details from eChallan app, which has data for on-line verification of vehicle and its license status. Off-line verification of mParivahan QR Code is also available on this platform. Normal android mobile apps can be used for this purpose.
