ScoutMyTrip is now the First Private Sector Travel Tech Company to integrate with GOI’s DigiLocker in a way suited for travelers and for the benefit of it’s users.
I have two identities – one of a techie working with ScoutMyTrip as it’s CTO, and the other of a traveler who likes to drive / ride his vehicles to explore lesser-known places, especially in Himalayas (and now Western Ghats). Every time I hit the road for such a road trip, it is always a pain to gather all the relevant documents which could be documents pertaining to the vehicle I’m taking out (DL, RC, PUC and Insurance) as well as documents which I may require during such travels (Identity proof like Aadhaar Card, Road Side Assistance, Travel Insurance, Medical Insurance, Accidental Insurance etc). As a traveler, I was always looking for a convenient way of categorizing, storing and carrying such documents.
With the Digital India initiative of Government Of India, driven by NeGD under MeitY, DigiLocker is one such utility which eases out that pain like a Swiss army knife whereby one would be able to store all their travel related documents which I just mentioned at a single, trustworthy repository which they can reference whenever and wherever required, on their fingertips!
