The Transport Department of Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh, India) is planning to replace the existing driving licences with `Smart Cards' to ensure tamper proof vehicle documents.
The new cards are likely to be introduced within three months in the city. Driving licence with a Smart Card contains the details of fitness, pollution and insurance documents besides personal details of the owner. National Informatics Centre, New Delhi, will provide the necessary software. It contains a memory chip that will prevent vehicle owners from giving false addresses and resorting to forgery of documents. The details of number of cases booked under the Motor Vehicle Act against a motorist by officials of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) will also be included in the chip. Any data of the cardholder can be obtained by swiping it to a handheld reader.
