     ‘Nowadays, what happens is that the ashamed person who causes an accident vanishes from the scene and gets a duplicate license. This may help him free from penalty. However, with Aadhar linkage, you can change your name but you can’t manipulate your biometrics, either iris or fingerprints. So the instance you seek for a duplicate license, the system will detect the person already has a driving license and shouldn’t be given new one’ said Prasad.

        Through a power presentation, he said that “ This is a digital profile of India- 123 crore Aadhar cards, 121 crore mobile phones, 44.6 crore smartphones, 56 crore internet users and there has been 51% growth in e-commerce.
