• No Need to Carry Your Driving Licence or RC while Driving

    Several amendments have been made under the Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH). According to the new updates, you don’t have to carry your driving licence or registration certificate (RC) while driving. Documents such as driving licences, e-challans, and RCs will now be digitalised.

    Vehicle documents can be uploaded on the Central Government’s online portals such as m-parivahan and DigiLocker. The reason behind this amendment is to make commuting easy for people as well as reduce corruption. The government will now be able to store penalties and records of a driver for a period of 10 years. The new changes will also help the government keep records of drivers who are differently-abled.

    Mobile Phones Can Be Used while Driving

    As per a new update in the Motor Vehicles Rules 1989, you can use a mobile phone or any other handheld device while driving for navigation. However, keep in mind that your concentration must not be affected when using such devices for navigation. A vehicle owner’s name will now be printed on the front side of the RC. The back of the RC will have an embedded QR code and a microchip.
