Utility of mParivahan app
Respected sir/madam Do i need to carry hard copy of my Driving Licence and RC even when I have my RC and DL digitally/virtually in the mParivahan app developed by NIC egov. Thank you.
Mparivahan is an empowering app for the citizen which provides access to various services, information and utilities related to the transport sector, bring convenience to citizen and transparency in the system. The apps also have additional functionalities - like road accident and traffic violation reporting by citizen, concept of virtual and enforceable DL/RC and so on, apart from a host of other technological advanced tools, utilities and services.
It is certain that virtual RC/DL can be stored and there is no need to carry hard copy of the same. However, to be on a safer side there are other apps like digilocker which are specially for the digital storage of documents
In order to access the digital RC and DL a person needs to first sign up for a DigiLocker. He then needs to download the DigiLocker Android App from Google PlayStore. In the Mobile App he will have to select the Issued Documents section and then the DL/RC. Field staff like the Traffic Police can do offline verification of RC/DL using QR Code. Apart from the mobile view version, digitally signed documents can also be accessed electronically, and these will be at par with the physical issued documents as per IT Act 2000.
