Yes, it is still possible to get a driving license. However, every application for obtaining a driving license needs to be accompanied by a medical certificate by a medical officer stating that you are fit to drive1. This certificate requires a declaration of physical fitness2 wherein the applicant is asked if he/she can distinguish the pigmentary colours, red and green. An applicant who answers in the negative has to supplement the answer with full details, and may be required to give further information regarding the same3.
If the medical certificate is granted taking into account all the particulars, the applicant may be able to obtain a driving license.
