Driving licences to be uniform across India

From next July, new driving licences (DLs) and 
vehicle registration certificates
 (RCs) issued by all states and union territories will be uniform in look, colour, design and will have the same security features.

The 'smart' DLs and RCs embedded with microchips will have QR codes. They will also be enabled with the near-field communication (NFC) feature, just like that of Metro and ATM cards, so that traffic enforcers with hand-held devices can easily access details stored in the cards.

The new 
 will have details of a driver's declaration to donate organs and mention if he/she is driving a specially designed vehicle meant for the physically challenged.

"The feature of emission norm for the vehicle will be specified on the 
 to help carry out the pollution under control test objectively. Currently, a person carrying out the test asks the owner about the details," a road transport ministry official said.

About 32,000 DLs are either issued or renewed across the country daily and nearly 43,000 vehicles are registered or re-registered.PTI
