The Ministry has clarified that the details of disqualified or revoked Driving License from the Licensing Authority will be recorded in the portal, which will be updated from time to time. It will appear on the updated data portal. If the details of the documents are found valid through electronic means from the enforcement officer, then physical documents will not be demanded for investigation. This will also include cases where the driver has committed a violation, in which a document has to be seized.
