‘No extension of driving licence validity, vehicle papers beyond October 31’ | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: There won’t be any more extension for the validity of expired vehicle and driver-related documents such as driving licence (DL), registration certificate (RC), permits and fitness certificates beyond October 31, the road transport ministry has informed the transporters’ organisations. The extension of validity is currently applicable for those documents which had their expiry date from February 1, 2020.
In a communication to the transporters’ organisations, the ministry said, “It’s clarified that this is the last such extension and no further extension in this regard will be given by the central government.”
This means even if some states or UTs notify such extension for more period — like Delhi has extended the validity period till November-end — those having expired documents may face action in case they are caught outside that particular state or UT since there is no central notification, which is applicable across the country.
The ministry said, “States and UTs have also been advised to complete the pending services in mission mode and in a time-bound manner to achieve this.” It said states have been advised to put extra resources to complete the processes relating to the pending cases of renewal and reissue of various documents of fitness, permits, RCs and DLs.
