Ather recently introduced a new advertisement that shows how one can store important documents like a driving license in the scooter’s infotainment system.

The Ather 450X comes with a massive 7.0-inch touchscreen unit that shows various information and details. The new TVC of Ather 450X shows how it can store digital documents like driving licenses and registration papers. The TVC shows how the Ather rider shows the DL and carries on with his riding.

The same infotainment screen is used for various things like OTA updates and smartphone connectivity as well. In India, the authorities have allowed storing of important documents digitally. These can be verified by the police using scanners and smartphone apps.

Some time ago, the government launched a new app, which allowed motorists to download a digital copy of their documents including the registration certificate and driving license. This move allowed the motorists to move around without these two documents as they can be downloaded on a smartphone.

With the new move, there is no need to download the documents as the cops will be able to verify them in their own systems with the help of the new software. The only physical document that any motorist will need to carry will be a pollution under check certificate. There is no clarity if the motorists need to carry it or if it will be linked to the registration number of the vehicle automatically.

The cops will not ask for the documents from now on if they need to issue a challan. It will be issued electronically. On non-payment of the challan, the owner will not be allowed to sell the vehicle or renew the driving license. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways made various amendments to the Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989 to introduce the new laws.

In the past, many incidents have occurred where policemen have been injured trying to stop rogue drivers. With the new law, the cops can simply write down the registration number and check the related documents online. They can also send a challan online through the new software. It will be also quite beneficial for the motorists who can keep the original documents at home safely.
