Paddy-laden truck fined Rs 58K in Bhadrak

Friday, 24 January 2020 | PNS | BHADRAK

A paddy-laden truck has been fined for traffic violations under the new Motor Vehicles Act in Bhadrak district.

The Maharashtra-registered truck going to Sambalpur from Chandbali was fined Rs 58,040 by RTO officials on Wednesday for the reasons of overloading and plying on the road without availing permit and Pollution under Control (PUC) certificate.

The Bhadrak Regional Transport Office also levied fine on the truck driver for not having Driving Licence (DL).

As the driver and the owner of the truck failed to make payment immediately, the vehicle has been detained by the Tihidi police.

Notably, the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019 has been enforced in Odisha from September 1. In view of heavy rush at the RTOs, the Government announced a three-month relaxation to get documents ready. The relaxation period was further extended by another three months providing enough time to vehicle riders and motorists to avail documents from the RTO authorities.
