Haryana government would soon issue smart card-based driving licenses and registration certificates in Gurgaon district on a pilot basis to eliminate touts and provide quick, hassle free services to citizens.

The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda here today.

The process of issuing driving licenses would be streamlined to the extent that the citizens would be provided learners/driving licenses within half an hour, an official spokesman said in Chandigarh.

The automated system would have defined work-flow and supported infrastructure computerised test that will eliminate involvement of touts in procuring driving licenses.

The applicants would be given stipulated time to appear for interview and the whole exercise would be completed within 30 minutes, the spokesperson said.

After completion of the process, the driving licenses would be delivered by speed post at the doorstep of the applicants, he said.

Earlier, Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System Ltd (DIMTS) gave a presentation on providing smart card-based driving licenses and registration certificates.

The company is a Joint Venture Company set up with equal equity of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) and Infrastructure Development Finance Company (IDFC) and has been providing the services at Delhi.

It has already issued 7.28 lakh smart card-based driving licenses in Delhi.
