These documents can be accessed via applications like 'Digilocker' and 'mParivahan' and can be presented when asked for.

Enforcement agencies can simultaneously access these details from the eChallan app to verify their originality. These have the date of online verification of the vehicle and its licence status.

This move is likely to help both authorities and vehicle owners by negating the need to handle paperwork. This should also improve transparency in such interactions.

These operating procedure will be implemented to ensure compliance with the provisions of rule 139 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989.
