Ever since the new Motor Vehicle Act came in the country, heavy fines are being charged from those who violate traffic rules. But in the meantime, many such cases have also come to light, in which strange challans have been deducted to people. Some time ago a challan was cut for not wearing a helmet in a man car. At the same time, the challan has been cut for not wearing a helmet of a bus driver. This is the case of Noida in Uttar Pradesh, where the owner of a private bus has claimed that Rs 500 was invoiced for allegedly not driving a helmet.
Nirankar Singh said that on September 11, an online challan was done and one of his employees saw it on Friday. Singh said that questions arise from the way the Transport Department is doing such things and there is doubt about the authenticity of hundreds of other challans issued daily to the people. He said, ‘I will put the matter before the authorities concerned and will go to court if needed.’ Meanwhile, the officials said that the matter is being looked into and if there is any mistake, it will be rectified. The official said that the challan has been issued by the transport department and not by the traffic police of Noida
The Motor Vehicles Act 2019 has come into effect from September 1 and since its implementation, huge challans of people are being cut across the country. The government notified 63 provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act 2019. This includes a provision for imposing higher fines for violation of traffic rules. Shortly before, the Motor Vehicles Bill was approved by the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. The purpose of this bill is to prevent people from violating traffic rules.
