The transportation department is getting ready to roll out new smart cards with chips and QR codes for registration certificates (RC) and driving licenses (DL).

In February 2024, the present vendor, which has been providing smart cards with chips for the last 15 years, will complete its contract.

The current vendor has reportedly given more than 2 crore DLs and 2 crore RCs throughout Karnataka, according to sources in the transport department.

For DLs and RCs, the switch to smart cards started in 2009.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has established requirements that the newly suggested cards must meet to ensure consistency in their issuance across the country.

More printed material will be available to them than to their predecessors.

More printed material will be available to them than to their predecessors.

With the chip installed, the front side of the DL will show the name, validity, date of birth, blood type, image, and address of the cardholder.

The vehicle type and emergency contact numbers will be put on the rear, in addition to the QR code.

Information such as the owner's details, address, engine numbers, chassis, validity, and registration number will all be shown on the front side of the RC.

Additional information on the rear will contain the name of the vehicle's manufacturer, the model, the body type, financial information, the number of seats, and a QR code.
