The Indian Government in a major relief to the motorists extended the validity of driving licenses and vehicle documents till the 31st of December 2020. This decision comes in the wake of the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.

All these will now be valid till 31st December 2020

Again, the Ministry extended the validity of the motor vehicle documents until September 30th. The extensions were in light of severe debilitating effects of COVID-19

"Taking into consideration the situation still continuing due to conditions for prevention of the spread of Covid-19 across the country, it has further advised that the validity of all of the above-referred documents whose extension of validity could not or not likely be granted due to lockdown and which had expired since 1st of Feb, 2020 or would expire by 31st Dec 2020, the same may be treated to be valid till 31st of December 2020," the statement said.
