I think the current system of physical license copy is better. If you cannot responsibly remember to carry your license, probably you are not responsible enough to be behind the wheels. (ofcourse forgetting once in a while is acceptable and you have to pay fine of 100 only if you forget it)

@Smh Physical driving license is not convenient for people using more than one vehicle. I keep the physical card in the glovebox of my car and while riding my bike I just keep the digital version in my phone.

Steal someone's mobile phone and you can steal someone's identity, life savings(connected to banks), and also destroy someone's life(just think of the personal information stored on it). And also there is the sim swapping threat where you will have your mobile handset and yet suffer.
The mobile phone has become a major threat to individual, that can not only be used to track you but also you have to pay for the privilege of being surveilled.

Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero Privacy
One search turned up more than a dozen people visiting the Playboy Mansion, some overnight. Without much effort we spotted visitors to the estates of Johnny Depp, Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger, connecting the devices’ owners to the residences indefinitely.
If you could see the full trove, you might never use your phone the same way again.
It doesn’t take much imagination to conjure the powers such always-on surveillance can provide an authoritarian regime like China’s. Within America’s own representative democracy, citizens would surely rise up in outrage if the government attempted to mandate that every person above the age of 12 carry a tracking device that revealed their location 24 hours a day. Yet, in the decade since Apple’s App Store was created, Americans have, app by app, consented to just such a system run by private companies. Now, as the decade ends, tens of millions of Americans, including many children, find themselves carrying spies in their pockets during the day and leaving them beside their beds at night — even though the corporations that control their data are far less accountable than the government would be.
Is it going to be much different for Indians?

hmm you can still use a 2g phone but even without apps still they can track you with tower location data. Apps just make your location data more accurate.

OR use cash and no phone, internet. Privacy vs Convenience.

The Telecom guys need to locate you, how would you receive your call?. But the apps disclose your locations to various other private companies. Remember the various permissions given to the apps on your smartphone or just accepted all to get use the app?

The difference between medicine and poison is the dosage, even life gving water in excess leads to death. How can someone die from drinking too much water?

Just as Linking Aadhaar to everything under the sun including you phone is undermining democracy. Just think about how the phone data of the CAA/NRC protesters combined with Aadhaar linked info can be used against them.
