Worried about losing your identity proofs while travelling by train? Worry no more. The railways have now said that they will accept soft copies of Aadhaar and driving licence provided they are in your DigiLocker, a digital storage service operated by the government that enables Indian citizens to store certain official documents on cloud.

The national transporter has sent a missive to all zonal principal chief commercial managers that these two identity proofs on such service will be accepted. "If a passenger shows Aadhaar or driving licence from the 'issued documents' section of DigiLocker, the same should be considered as valid proof of identity," the order said.
