Regional Transport Authority (RTA) is now accepting Aadhaar as a valid ID for address and age proof to get a driving licence. The rule has been implemented in all 11 RTA offices across Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts.
“The applicants were earlier asked to submit birth certificate, passport, life insurance policy etc for age proof to apply for a driving licence.
But after the government recently issued orders regarding Aadhaar, the RTA officials have started accepting the Unique number as ID proof for date of birth,” Telangana Auto and Motor Welfare Union general secretary M Dayanand said.
According to RTA officials, the notification to amend rules for driving licences proposes Aadhaar as one of the documents that could be submitted as address and age proof as prescribed in the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989.
