Driver’s License

In order to fight the issue of people having more than one driving licence, the government made it mandatory to have an Aadhaar identification card for a new driving licence.

Those who want to apply for a licence renewal should also submit their Aadhaar identification according to reports.

Using this identification, the authorities will make a single document to establish the identity of the applicant and easily monitor details of the driver.

Reports say that the government wants to make Aadhar the only source of identification for individuals in India.

As the government makes Aadhar so important, the netizens of India already made several hilarious jokes on the matter on Twitter.
