Online system to crosscheck driving licence in Nepal

Oct 08, 2009

The new digital record system launched by the Department of Transport Management in Nepal allows license holders to check the validity of their driving ID online. It facilitates easy tracking of fake licences and faster delivery of services.

Kathmandu: Nepali Department of Transport Management (DoTM) has launched digital record system which will enable driving licence holders to check the legal status of their license online in its website.

The department launched this facility under the e-governance initiative for the public after the number of people holding fake driving licenses went up, reported China's Xinhua news agency cited a local daily on Tuesday.

License holders can now check the validity of their driving licenses simply by entering the license number, citizenship number and the district from where they obtained their citizenship certificate.

If the licence is fake, no details will be displayed.

In the initial phase, DoTM has only kept the records of licenses issued by Bagmati Zonal Transport Office. The office has issued around 200,000 licenses till July 16, 2009.

"Details of 1.2 million license holders throughout the country will be available online within the next four months," Anil Gurung, director at DoTM was quoted by the daily as saying.

He said DoTM officials have been sent to all 14 zones to collect necessary data in this regard.

The department will be able to issue and renew driving licenses and register vehicles through digital technology.
