    Recently govt of India has introduced digital locker a mobile up load web site where one can up load DL and RC linked with Aadhaar Card which eliminates the need to carry those things. I tried to do it but my documents are not available in MoRH national data registry. There is no provision to up load or connect. Will the transport Department of Karnataka take initiative to be one in national stream.
