The Regional Transport Department has introduced a Smart Card facility for both Driving License and Vehicle Registration. This will aid department in maintaining law and minimize vehicle theft across state.

After being introduced all over India, this facility was now initiated across Rajasthan few weeks ago. Though smart card is very handy and could be easily kept in pocket, but it has its own pros and cons, especially when driver is habitual to Alcohol or other such stuff.

Deputy Transport Officer, O.P Bairwa, brought into light some important facts about smart card which has to be followed. One must always carry original license while driving, as this smart card has a micro chip which helps tracking driver’s details.

He appealed to the public to not to drive when one is under the influence of alcohol. Because if caught, the license will be marked once, and on third mark driver will suffer imprisonment and his vehicle will be ceased. In case of accidents, no insurance claim will be availed against the losses.

According to Bairwa, “This smart card was also introduced in Vehicle Registration commonly called as ‘RC’, in which all the related details are fed into the micro chip including phone numbers of owner.”

“Driver’s personal details will help in making contact with actual owner in case of theft or vice versa, “added Bairwa.

Process of acquiring smart card is kept similar to that of normal licensing formalities including fees of Rs.200. One has to pay Rs.200 extra for changing from conventional to Smart Card. You have to carry two photographs, one ID proof (Voter ID, PAN card, Domicile, Ration Card, Aadhar Card or Passport) and copy of old license.

In other parts of India including Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Delhi this Smart Card was introduced in year 2008. It took quite long for Rajasthan to get familiar with technology, though it is never too late to implement such technologies.
