Delhi to Issue Smart Card With QR Code For Driving Licence and Vehicle Registration Verification


The rolling out of digital drivers' licences in Delhi

Drivers will be given a smart card enabled with a QR code. This grants police access to their information which is contained on a centralized database.

“The new cards will allow police and other officials to access and verify information about an individual driver or vehicle by scanning the QR code on the relevant smart card with a mobile device.”

The article notes that currently drivers’ information is stored on a chip which is embedded into the licence - a set-up which often results in difficulties with reading the information. It says that records of the licence holders will be held on the database for up to 10 years.

The new DLs will also help the government in maintaining records of differently abled drivers, any modifications made to the vehicles, emission standards and the person’s declaration to donate organs
