New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has suggested a tough law to check fake driving licence holders freely driving on city roads as also those who issue such licences.

The court also set up a committee comprising five lawyers and the Joint Commissioner of Police and directed the police to convene a meeting of committee members with insurance companies to have a detailed discussion to sort out the problem on December 14.

While hearing a motor accident case in which the driver had a fake driving licence, Justice J R Midha, in an order, has sent 9 suggestions, submitted by senior counsel Arun Mohan, to the export committee of the Ministry of Road and Transport for consideration.

Advocate Mohan suggested a special cell with an e-mail address to be created to entertain the complaints relating to fake license holders.

Whenever the police registers an FIR against a person for driving with fake licence, particulars of the FIR be entered by the cell in the entry against the information received, the counsel suggested.

He said the cell should prepare a tabulated chart for the information received and look for any pattern within it and take action according to law.

The senior lawyer said the detail about the offender should be displayed on the website so that the transport authorities in other states can access the information.
