The Road Transport Ministry of India will launch a mobile app called m-Parivahan this month, which will help citizens report road accidents, crashes, and traffic violations.
Such incidents can be reported from anywhere in the country, by simply taking a picture on your phone and uploading it. The user has the option to chose if his/ her identity can be revealed or not.
The m-Parivahan app will be launched as a part of the government's initiatives to check road accidents and violation of traffic norms during the Road Safety Week.
Also, the ministry will launch an ‘e-challan' mobile app, which will be useful for the police and the transport department officials to track and have an eye on repeat offenders.
A release from the Transport Ministry said, "If a vehicle number is entered into the m-Parivahan app, it will give full details of the vehicle and the owner including his driving licence and and registration certificate."
"The user has to be registered so that his credentials can be established. One of the ways of doing this would be through an Aadhar based one-time password."
The launch of the m-Parivahan app will be helpful to a lot of good samaritans in the country who look at violators on a day to day basis, but are helpless. The m-Parivahan app will be a great platform to report accidents and traffic violators when launched.
