Aadhar to be linked with Driver’s License: Ravi Shankar Prasad
New Delhi: At the recently concluded 106th Indian Science Congress, Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the Government might very soon make linking of Aadhar and Driver’s Licence mandatory. He said that once the said Bill gets passed in both houses, the linking could be made mandatory.
“We are soon going to bring a law which will make it mandatory to link Aadhaar with driving licence”, he said to Indian Express.
Explaining the move, Prasad said that any culprit might cause an accident and flee the scene. He/she might get another DL using fake details. If his/her DL gets linked with the Aadhar, then this move will not be possible.
