The Bangalore Traffic Police has confirmed that vehicle documents in electronic form are acceptable. Through a tweet, the traffic police in Bangalore has rubbished rumours that stated the insurance papers of vehicles needed to be in the form of a hard copy
After the new Motor Vehicle Amendment Act was implemented across the country, motorists are fuming. Many motorists are being fined tens of thousands of rupees like this man who was issued a challan of Rs 23,000.
Adding to this are rumours about the police not accepting digital copies of insurance papers. Several media outlets too had carried this as a piece of news. According to these reports, the police would accept driving licenses, vehicle registration certificates and pollution under control certificates as on government-approved smartphone apps.
According to the same reports, Insurance papers would have to be carried as a hard copy. However, a tweet sent out by Bangalore Traffic Police has rubbished those rumours.
The tweet read, "It is hereby clarified that The MInistry of Road Transport and Highways has issued an advisory to states to accept driving license, registration certificate or other documents in electronic form presented through Digilocker or mParivahan platform as valid under the Motor Vehicle Act 1988 and treat them at par with the certificates issued by the transport authorities."
Digilocker is a smartphone app from the government of India that allows its users to upload and store all official, government-issued documents like Aadhar, driving license, registration certificates, etc.
mParivahan is another such platform where users can upload all vehicle-related documents. When the apps were launched, the government has openly clarified that they can be used to produce documents while being checked. However, a few rumours had left the people confused. The tweet from the Bangalore Traffic Police has now put the rumours to rest.
