Nowadays we have a lot of government ID’s starting from Aadhar card to passport. It’s very difficult to organize and carry all this everywhere. It is also a risky affair as if any one of these Id’s get lost you will have to go through a lengthy process to get a duplicate one or get it renewed. ID’s like driver’s license have to be carried every time you are travelling so chances of it getting lost are very high also if you don’t carry it around if you are driving you get fined. This puts us normal citizens at a dilemma whether to carry these ID’s or keep them safe in a secure area. This is where Digilocker comes into play.
