Gemalto has reached the ten million milestone for distribution of electronic driver’s licenses and electronic registration certificates for cars delivered to India, making it the biggest project of this nature in the world.
The digital security company designed the e-driver licenses to protect against identity theft. The card stores all the driver’s personal data in addition to their driving history.
Gemalto’s e-Registration Certificate card contains data about the vehicle, insurance information and control certification. Both devices incorporate a microprocessor for secure storage.
The program has reached nearly one-tenth of the driving population in India, providing convenience to the owners of the e-documents and greater efficiency for monitoring by the authorities.
Gemalto is also deploying Driver’s Licenses in Australia, El Salvador, Finland, Mexico, Norway and Sweden.
