In a circular, MoRTH said, "Taking into consideration the situation due to conditions for prevention of spread of COVID-19 across the country, it has been further advised that the validity of all of the above-referred documents whose extension of validity could not or not likely be granted due to lock-down and which had expired since 1 February 2020 or would expire by 31 Dec 2020, the same may be treated to be valid till 31 December 2020. Enforcement authorities have been advised to treat such documents valid till 31 December 2020."

The rationale behind further extending the validity of such documents is that there are a few parts of the country which are still under strict lockdown. Few government and private offices are still running with minimal staff or haven't resumed full function yet. Therefore, the ministry decided to increase the validity and this step will definitely help citizens whose motor vehicle related documents are about to expire or have expired.
