09 September 2016 Current Affairs: The Union Government has launched a new service -integration of DigiLocker with Driving Licenses (DL) & Vehicle Registration Certificates (RC).
It was jointly launched by Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari and Union Minister of Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad in New Delhi.
With this integration people will no longer need to carry around physical copies of their Driving Licences and RCs. Using DigiLocker mobile app, they can instead access digital copies of the same on their mobile phones. Besides, DLs and VRC documents will be now issued directly to the DigiLockers of individuals in digital formats.
These digital copies also can be shared with other government departments as identity and address proof. They can also be used for on the spot verification through the citizen’s mobile, by various law enforcement authorities like the Traffic Police. Besides, it will also result in assured authenticity of such documents and reduction of administrative overhead.
DigiLocker is a key initiative under Digital India programme and serves as a platform for issuance of documents and certificates in a digital way.
The integration of VRCs and DLs with DigiLocker will bring a major shift in the vision of paperless governance. It will also bring efficiency to the entire process of issuance of driving licenses and vehicle registration certificates through IT enablement.
