Riding in India entails more than just having your hands on your bike. There are numerous traffic and road safety laws that you must follow. You must learn about various traffic signals, speed restrictions in various locations, and the meaning of multiple signboards. 

 

Besides this, the law mandates you to carry various documents in your bike's top box. You must carry your registration certificate, pollution control certificate, driver's license, and proof of bike insurance. You may face a penalty if the traffic authorities discover you riding without any mandatory papers.

 

However, it is a common occurrence that we forget to bring these documents with us when we are in a rush. To assist us in such a situation, the government has introduced the concept of digital papers. As per the Central Motor Vehicle Rules amendment, electronically saved documents are now acceptable.
