In a bid to minimise physical contact between motorists and traffic police in Bengaluru, the city traffic police have urged citizens to digitise all vehicle documents. 

Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) BR Ravikanthe Gowda has urged vehicle owners in the city to use Digilocker or mParivahan mobile applications to keep records of Driving License, Registration Certificate, Insurance, Emission certificate, fitness certificate (FC), and other permits.

These efforts are aimed towards increasing transparency and minimising physical contact between motorists and traffic police.

"This will help motorists to show them to the traffic police during checks. While vehicle owners would be able to keep the original physical documents safe, it will also help us to ensure fake documents are identified more easily," he said. Gowda explained that the QR codes displayed on the digital certificates would help cops verify the document.

The traffic police, on July 5, had enabled payment of fines via Paytm.

When motorists produce digital documents for verification, traffic police personnel on duty will scan the QR code displayed in the app to check if the digital document is genuine.

Due to the safety features and the fact that they are user friendly, the traffic department encourages all the motorists to avail and use the facility, he added.
