Earlier on Tuesday, the Gurugram Traffic Police have issued a whopping challan of Rs 23,000 to a scooty driver for violating the traffic rules and seized his vehicle. The owner of the scooty driver Dinesh Madan had said, "I wasn't wearing a helmet and didn't have Registration Certificate (RC). Traffic Police asked me to give him my scooty's key, but I denied. Immediately he printed a challan of Rs 23,000 and seized my vehicle. Value of my scooty is around Rs. 15,000. I even got a copy of RC on Whatsapp from home, but by then he had printed challan. The amount could have been less if he would have waited for a while. I want that fine should be relaxed. From now on, I will always carry my documents."

According to the challan copy, Madan was fined Rs 5,000 for riding scooty without his licence, Rs 5,000 for not producing his Registration Certificate, Rs 2,000 for not having third-party insurance, Rs 10,000 for violating air pollution standards and another Rs 1,000 for not wearing a helmet. Madan was issued the challan opposite the district court in Gurugram. The Ministry of Road Transport notified the provisions of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019. The MVA was implemented from September 1.
