The Government is Planning to Link Driving Licenses with Aadhaar. Why?
The Government of India has come across many instances where a single person has more than one driving license. As per the rule related to road transport, No one can possess multiple drivers’ licenses.
Driving license issued in one state is valid in all other states and union territories of the country. Thus, No need for multiple driving licenses.
To curb this menace, the government is planning to link Aadhaar with driving licenses. Licenses not linked with Aadhaar would be deactivated after the end of the deadline.
As only one driving license DL can be linked with Aadhaar, the issue of duplicate licenses can be easily controlled.
The process has not been started as of now but will soon be initiated once the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways finalizes all legal and infrastructural arrangements.
In case anyone has multiple driving licenses, they can surrender it in their regional office of the Road Transport Department.
