The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has issued a standardised procedure for issuance of international driving permit across the country in accordance with Convention on International Road Traffic of 1949.
In a notification, the ministry said that the provision for QR code to link international driving permit (IDP) with the driving license has also been made.
Currently, the permit differs across the states of India due to different size, pattern, colour, format of IDP. Therefore, many citizens face difficulties with respective IDPs in foreign countries.
Being a signatory to Convention on International Road Traffic of 1949, India is required to issue IDP as provided under this Convention.
As per the Transport Ministry, a comparison of vehicle categories across various rules has also been added for facilitation of regulatory authorities. Emails and helpline numbers have also been provided.
