The Ministry of Roads, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has developed the  portal named ‘e-DAR’ (e-Detailed Accident Report) to speed up accident compensation claims


  • Designed in consultation with insurance companies
  • Provide instant information on road accidents with a few clicks
  • Help accelerate accident compensation claims, bringing relief to victims’ families
  • Digitalised Detailed Accident Reports (DAR) will be uploaded for easy access
  • Will be linked to the Integrated Road Accident Database (iRAD)
  • Stakeholders like the police, road authorities, hospitals, etc., are required to enter very minimal information for the e-DAR forms
  • Would be linked to other government portals like Vaahan and would get access to information on driving licence details and registration of vehicles
  • Would provide geo tagging of the exact accident spot along with the site map
  • Details like photos, video of the accident spot, damaged vehicles, injured victims, eye-witnesses, etc., would be uploaded immediately
  • Apart from the state police, an engineer from the Public Works Department or the local body will receive an alert on his mobile device and the official concerned will then examine the accident site
  • Would conduct multiple checks against fake claims by conducting a sweeping search of vehicles involved in the accident, the date of accident, and the First Information Report number
