Fake driving licenses will be history, Link Aadhaar card with DL
New Delhi: You may have to give your Aadhaar card to get a driving license soon. Union Law and Justice and Ministry of Information Technology (India) Ravi Shankar Prasad have said that the government is going to link the driving license to Aadhaar card. If you do not have an Aadhaar card, then you will not be able to get a driving license. The purpose of this move of the government is to ban the issuance of fake driving licenses. As being connected to Aadhaar card, all your biometric data will be known by government agencies through a driver's license. For this reason, if a person wants to make two driving licenses, then his theft will be caught. Ravi Shankar Prasad today informed the government's proposed decision in a program. Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "We are thinking of linking the driving license to the Aadhaar, I have spoken to Nitin Gadkari about this." Nitin Gadkari is currently the Minister of Surface Transport.
According to the media report, the central government could adopt this proposal next month. Let us tell you that if a driver's driving license is canceled in violation of traffic rules or in the event of criminal activity, such people would then be able to make a fresh driving license from other areas of the country. By obtaining several driving licenses, a criminal could also have succeeded in concealing their identity. But the biometric detail of Aadhaar number will be successful in preventing any such fraud. The government feels like this.
According to a report, the Central Surface Transport Ministry has started working on this proposal. And for this, necessary changes are being made in the legal provisions. Since issuing a driving license is the subject matter of the state. Therefore, the Center will appeal to all the states to adopt this safe system. The government claims that due to this system, a person will be stopped on the wrong practice of obtaining license from different Regional Transport Offices in different states of the country.
