Notification issued for greater facilitation of citizens in the issue of International Driving Permit (IDP) across the country

By PIB Delhi

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways issued a notification on 26 August 2022 for greater facilitation of citizens in the issue of International Driving Permit (IDP) across the country.

India, being a signatory to the Convention on International Road Traffic of 1949 (Geneva Convention), is required to issue IDP as provided under this Convention for the acceptance of the same on a reciprocal basis with other countries.

Currently, the format, size, pattern, colour, etc. of the IDP being issued was differing across states in India. Due to this, many citizens were facing difficulties with their respective IDP in foreign countries.

Now, through this amendment, the format, size, colour, etc. for IDP has been standardized for issuance across India, and in adherence to the Geneva Convention. Provision for a QR code to link the IDP with the Driving License has also been made. A comparison of vehicle categories across various Conventions and Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989, has also been added for the facilitation of regulatory authorities. Helpline numbers and email have also been provided.
