The new Motor Vehicles Act came into effect starting September 2019 and under it, several penalties for violating traffic rules have been hiked up to 5 times. While many of these penalties have been the reiteration of earlier traffic fines and the general public is aware about them, some of them are new. Passengers in a vehicle not wearing a seat belt is one of them. And that includes all the passengers, even the ones seated at the back. The mandate applies to all passengers aged 14 and above.
The new law as mentioned in the Gazette notifies a penalty of Rs 1000 if any of the passengers in a vehicle is not wearing a seat belt. It is interesting to note that while the law was already mentioned under the Motor Vehicle Act, it was never really imposed by the traffic police on the roads. With the new Motor Vehicle Act though, things might be set to change.

Motor Vehicle Act 2019, New Traffic Rules, New Traffic Fines, Traffic Penalty, New Traffic Challan,


Not many knew about the new mandate is evident from the fact that even the police was not active in issuing challans around the violation. As per a report by the Tribune, Shashank Anand, SSP (Traffic), Chandigarh clarified that the traffic police would soon run an awareness campaign around this, telling people the importance of wearing a seat belt even at the rear seats of a vehicle.
As the norms around transport use on the Indian roads tighten, several new amendments have been made to the Motor Vehicle Act. A new fine of Rs 10,000 has been introduced which will be imposed on those blocking the way of an emergency vehicle on the road. In addition, the Rajasthan traffic police recently reported that motorists having stickers displaying their caste, religion and political affiliations might be penalised in the state.

Pp are famous for such kind of harassment
*काला कायदा*
*लोगो के यह समझने की जरूरत है, ध्यान से पढ़िए।*

*BS-04, BS-05, BS-06* इंजन के जमाने में *PUC सर्टिफिकेट* की क्या जरूरत है ???

सही में बताया जाए तो यह सब पॉल्यूशन फ़्री गाड़ी है तो फिर *PUC* किस बात का लिए जा रहा है, सोचने की बात है

क्या *100 रुपए की पावती पॉल्यूशन कम कर सकती है???*

सरकार को पता नहीं है कि *गाड़ी बनाने वाली कंपनी यह नियम का पालन नहीं करती है* या फिर *पेट्रोल/डीजल पंप वाले मिलावटी पेट्रोल/डीजल बेच रहे है।*

*मतलब गलती किसी और कि और भुगत रहे है कोई और।*

मतलब आम जनता से *(PUC सर्टिफिकेट पे लिए जाने वाला दंड)*

जो गाड़ी पॉल्यूशन करती है मतलब *गाड़ी बनाने वाली कंपनी दोषी है* या फिर *गाड़ी में पेट्रोल/डीजल जो पंप से भरवाया वह दोषी है।* और *दंड* उनको होना चाहिए नहीं कोई आम जनता को।

मेरे से सहमत हो तो यह मैसेज को आगे भेजिये और सबको समझाइए।


Bald tyres ?
Pay fine....

Cops start FINING people whose vehicles’ tyres have run more than 30,000 Kms!
Posted on October 9, 2019 by Devesh Mishra

The Government of India passed the amended Motor Vehicle Act some time back and it was implemented last month. The amendments made to the act mainly constitute higher fines among other things which has been done in a bid to promote road discipline in India. However, due to a near tenfold increase in fines, there have been various cases across the country which made headlines for very high challans. Now, a report by Banglore Mirror says that cops can also issue a challan to any vehicle that is running on bald tires. The official guidelines suggest that tires which have run for more than 30,000 km can be deemed to be unsafe and hence can be fined too.

Speaking on the same, a traffic police personnel says:
“Under the IMV Act, it has been defined that tyres should be changed after running for 30,000 km or else they are prone to accidents as the grip loosens. So fine is imposed on those with bald tyres as these could cause accidents.”
What this means is that those cars which are running on smoothened out tires can be fined by the police too. Also, this is probably an older rule and has not been introduced in the recent amendment of the Motor Vehicle Act. On a lighter note, the fine amount for bald tyres is just Rs 100 which is not much. The traffic police in Banglore has even fined one person on for having old tires on his vehicle. The same report also says that those offenders can be fined too who often get into arguments and do not acknowledge their offences. For such people, the traffic police is slapping penalty for ‘misbehaviour with a police officer’. In fact, the Banglore traffic police have already booked 19 cases for misbehaviour with police officers. The fine, however, is only Rs 100 each. Commenting on the same, a traffic police officer said:

“When we fine people they often argue and they do not want to pay fines. They try to get away. At times, it also results in a fight so fining offenders for misbehaviour will bring discipline and offenders would refrain from attacking or abusing traffic officials on being fined,”
While a few may see this fine regarding bald tires as another irrelevant fine, driving with improper tires attracts heavy fine in several international countries. Basically, tires are the sole point of contact a vehicle has with the ground and hence it is necessary for them to be in good condition. A car with worn-out tires is pretty dangerous too as the amount of grip offered by the rubber is reduced with time. This is because the treads start to fade and the rubber area with the best grip also wears off, leading to a loss in traction.
Therefore, no matter how advanced a vehicle is or how powerful its engine is, worn-out tires are a sure-shot way of getting involved in an accident. Therefore, make sure to change the tires as soon as it starts showing its age. Regarding the law, the only question which remains unanswered is what is the basis of implementation of this law and how will cops decide that they are more than 30,000 km run or not. For now, best is to replace the tires as soon as they start showing serious ageing features. Worn out tires also pose the risk of bursting suddenly during high-speed runs and that can easily cause a serious accident.

Motor Vehicle Act: सावधान! पुराने टायरों पर भी कट रहा है चालान, जानें कितने किलोमीटर के बाद बदलें गाड़ी का टायर नियमानुसार यदि गाड़ी 30,000 किलोमीटर से ज्यादा चल चुकी है और इस दौरान वाहन के टायर नहीं बदले गए हैं तो ये दुर्घटना का कारण बन सकते हैं। ऐसी स्थिति में पुराने टायर के प्रयोग पर चालान का प्रावधान किया गया है।

पुराने टायर कभी भी दुर्घटना का कारण बन सकते हैं। फोटो: driving-tests

Motor Vehicle Act 2019: देश के नए मोटर व्हीकल एक्ट के लागू होने के बाद चारो तरफ चालान की ही चर्चा हो रही है। यदि आप भी पुरानी गाड़ी चलाते हैं और आपके गाड़ी के पहिए घिस चुके हैं तो आपको तत्काल सावधान हो जाने की जरूरत है! क्योंकि देश की ट्रैफिक पुलिस अपने वाहनों के पुराने घिसे हुए टायरों की भी सघनता से जांच कर रही है। यदि टायर बेकार और पुराने पाए जा रहे हैं तो ट्रैफिक पुलिस नए मोटर व्हीकल एक्ट के तहत इस पर भी चालान काट रही है।
बैंगलोर मिरर में छपी एक रिपोर्ट के अनुसार, पुलिस अब पुराने और खराब हो चुके टायरों के लिए भी चालान काट रहे हैं। नियमानुसार यदि गाड़ी 30,000 किलोमीटर से ज्यादा चल चुकी है और इस दौरान वाहन के टायर नहीं बदले गए हैं तो ये दुर्घटना का कारण बन सकते हैं। ऐसी स्थिति में पुराने टायर के प्रयोग पर चालान का प्रावधान किया गया है।
बता दें कि, पुराने और खराब हो चुके टायरों के प्रयोग के लिए चालान की राशि बहुत ज्यादा नहीं है। इसके लिए महज 100 रुपये का चालान काटा जा रहा है। हाल ही में बैंगलुरू में ट्रैफिक पुलिस ने एक व्यक्ति का चालान इसलिए काट दिया है क्योंकि उसने अपनी गाड़ी में पुराने और घिसे हुए टायरों का प्रयोग किया था।

इतना ही नहीं इस मामले में उक्त वाहन चालक और ट्रैफिक पुलिस के बीच नोक झोक भी हो गई थी, जिसके बाद ट्रैफिक पुलिस ने दुव्यवहार करने के आरोप में भी चालक पर पेनाल्टी लगाया है। हालांकि इस बारे में आधिकारिक तौर पर कोई जानकारी नहीं मिल सकी है कि उक्त वाहन चालक पर कुल कितना जुर्माना लगाया गया है।

यदि आपने भी 30,000 किलोमीटर के बाद अपने वाहन के पहियों को नहीं बदला है, या फिर आपके कार के भी पहिए घिस चुके हैं। तो ऐसी स्थिति में किसी भी तरह के चालान से बचने के लिए तत्काल अपने पहियों को बदलें। क्योंकि ये नियमों के खिलाफ है और आपका भी चालान काटा जा सकता है। बता दें कि, टायर गाड़ी का सबसे प्रमुख हिस्सा होता है और इसके खराब होने की स्थिति में दुर्घटना की आशंका बढ़ जाती है।

Beware , You challan can be cut if your vehicle is at home also

We have every single heard story of how horrible (and strong!) the most recent couple of months have been for traffic rules breakers, inferable from the usage of the New Motor Vehicle Act.


As far back as this demonstration became effective, traffic police crosswise over states have been vigilant for traffic violators, hitting them with challans after challans, which were joined by powerful fines! Be that as it may, an ongoing improvement took Ghaziabad occupant, Arun Sharma, by absolute stun!


Arun Sharma, who happens to be an occupant of Meerut Road Industrial Area, affirms that he was fined with 15 E-challans in August, despite the fact that he had not once taken his vehicle out on the streets. Truly, you read that right! According to an ongoing report, while Sharma chose to record a protest with the Delhi and Ghaziabad police, they would not test the issue, and even trained him to pay the punishments. It was then when Sharma made plans to explore the issue himself, just to discover that a transgressor was utilizing a copy of his number plate on the streets and was the one in charge of damaging the principles. The cameras would catch the vehicle’s number plate and send the e-challan to the enrolled proprietor of the equivalent, i.e., Arun Sharma.


Anyway Sharma didn’t stop there and chose to get the lowlife all alone. On 30th September, he some way or another figured out how to follow the area of the vehicle with the copy number plate and landed at its area – Akshardham Temple! To his stun, he saw a vehicle of the careful make and shading as his, and obviously, with a similar number plate! With proof close by, he at that point moved toward the police and got the blackguard captured.

Delhi Traffic Police To Withdraw 1.5 Lakh e-Challans

Stating the reason for withdrawing the challans, an officer of the Delhi Traffic Police said that, the PWD had put up a signboard of speed limit of 70 kmph while the challans were issued for speeding over 60 kmph on national highway.

The Delhi Traffic Police will withdraw the challans issued between August and October 10

Delhi Traffic Police have decided to withdraw about one and a half lakh challans issued mostly to those who were found overspeeding on National Highway 24 between August and October 10.
However, there is no clarity on what will happen to the amount taken as fines.
A Joint Commissioner-level traffic police officer, on condition of anonymity, said: "Delhi Traffic Police is withdrawing about 1.5 lakh challans issued in two and a half months between August and October 10. Most of these were related to overspeeding on National Highway 24."
Another Delhi Traffic Police officer said: "In fact, these challans were issued on National Highway 24 between Nizamuddin bridge and Ghazipur, which is close to Delhi-UP border."
What forced Delhi Traffic Police to withdraw these challans? To this, an officer said: "The reason behind the withdrawal of these challans was that the PWD had put up a signboard of speed limit of 70 km/hr while the challans were issued for speeding over 60 km/hr on national highway. We decided to take back the challans after receiving a lot of complaints."

According to a police officer, the Traffic Police had asked the PWD to change the signboard showing 60 km/hr as the speed limit, but they did not do it. Now the cameras along the Highway has been set with 70 km/hr as the maximum speed, the police said.
Now the question is - what of the crores of rupees paid as fines by the public for alleged violations of traffic rules? Delhi police has no answer to it.

Another reason for withdrawing the challans could be, according to a senior police officer, that some drivers had decided to approach the court with a public interest litigation as they felt they did not do anything wrong and they are innocent. It would have been an awkward situation for the Traffic Police to defend the indefensible in the court, the officer said.
