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