Have you ever thought about the time when someone got you into an accident and left abruptly? Or someone who just didn’t bother about the Ambulance and overtakes it causing the major problems to the one who is in the Ambulance? Or someone driving so rashly when there is no traffic police that the rest of the people were in great danger? If yes, then what was your thought process after that? To make the driving person realize his/her mistake and the question that hits your mind always is how? How should I find the Vehicle Owner details?

Well, there is a great solution to it which was introduced by the Ministry of Road, Transport, and Highways in 2011, called VAHAN. Vahan is a process that requires just the registration number of the vehicle to reach out to the owner of the vehicle and get his required details. There are approximately more than 25 crore vehicles registered under Vahan and more and more are being registered every day. Vahan works by collecting data and information about the vehicle owner by a vehicle registration certificate, driving licenses registered at RTO and DTO offices across the country, compiling it, and giving the results as quickly and efficiently as possible.
