As per project details, data is stored in two halves of the chip. One half contains the personal information of the license holder and cannot be changed or modified while the second half is re-writable where history of violations can be recorded. At the end of the day, violation data is transferred from the policemans handheld device (PDA) to local police station ,which is then transferred to the central server (at district/state level) through secure channel that ensures data security and integrity. The other salient features of e-drivers license include that it allows the authorities to provide for supplementary provisions and services. Comprehensive data of violations is electronically stored and available to the authorities. The official said the prevailing security concerns demand robust identification and verification systems that allow authorities to be constantly vigilant in order to prevent unlawful act. The RFID drivers license makes it extremely hard to counterfeit as the RFID tags foil identity theft and prevent criminals from using false documents. The official said license cards allow automatic withdrawal of driving rights as a result of traffic violations. A state-of-the-art system can monitor movements of users while a comprehensive violation data is electronically stored. Outstanding penalties are payable at electronic payment machines (kiosks).
