In light of such increasing traffic rages, the central government has digitised documents including maintenance of vehicles, driving licences and e-challans that will now be done through an information technology portal from October 1, 2020.
Vehicular documents found validated through electronic means shall not be demanded in physical forms for inspection, it said and added that details of driving licences disqualified or revoked by the licensing authority will be recorded and updated chronologically in the portal.
