Wearing of helmets for two-wheelers is mandatory on Indian roads. Riding without a helmet is considered one of the common traffic offenses that is committed by almost all the riders. However, as per the new traffic rules, a challan of Rs 2000 can be deducted, even if you are wearing a helmet. Today, we are going to tell you about it.
According to the Actual Motor Vehicle Act, if you are not wearing a helmet strip while riding a two-wheeler, then your challan of Rs 1000 as per Rule 194D MVA and if you are wearing a defective helmet (without BIS), then challan of Rs 1000 as per Rule 194D MVA Invoice may get deducted. Therefore, in this case, despite wearing a helmet, you may have to pay the challan of Rs 2000 for not following the new rules.
Other than this, you may have to pay a heavy fine of Rs 20,000 if you overload the vehicle, as per the new Motor Vehicle Act. Also, an extra penalty of Rs 2,000 per tonne will have to be paid for doing so. This has already happened in the past when cases of deducting several challans have come into light.
