Abstract: Gujarat was the first state in India which introduced the smart card license system in 1999. It was the first place in the world which introduced this innovative system and, thus, its implementation was a real challenge. As of now, Gujarat Government has issued 5 million smart card driving licenses to its people. This card is basically a plastic card having ISO 7810 certification and integrated circuit,capable of storing and verifying information according to its programming. To avoid corruption and mismanagement of driving licence, in the year 1999,Gujarat State Government launched the smart card driving license system, which has become the success story for dif ferent states of India and overseas countries such as USA.
