If you have tampered with some parts of your car now, it may fall heavily on your pocket. The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has added a new section in the amended Motor Vehicles Act, under which some parts of the vehicle may be tampered with.
Rs 5,000 fine and six months imprisonment
The government has added a new section 182 in the amended Motor Vehicles Act to prevent tampering of some parts of vehicles such as speed governors, GPS and CNG keeping road safety in mind. Under this, both the company and the customer can be fined up to five thousand rupees and imprisoned for six months for tampering with these parts or components.
Tempering with CNG kit will have to pay a heavy penalty
On the other hand, if the GPS is not found to be in line with the standards, both the company and the customer may also face legal action. At the same time, some people after installing the CNG kit in the vehicle, change some of its parts such as the filling wall. The government may issue a government notification in December regarding the new section 182. Section 182 will tighten the screws on both private and commercial vehicles. At the same time, after the notification is issued, it will take the form of law and there will be a provision of both penalty and punishment for violations.
Penalty for speeding
Under Section 182, the speed of commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses, tankers etc. will not exceed 80 Kmph on the highway and 40 to 60 Kmph in the city. At the same time, there will be a provision of a fine of five thousand rupees and a sentence of six months for tampering with the speed governor engaged or driving at full speed.
