The bulk of the fine was for over­load­ing. The min­i­mum chal­lan for the of­fence un­der the new MVA rules is Rs 20,000, apart from Rs 2,000 to be paid for each ex­tra tonne. The fine ear­lier was Rs 2,000 for over­load­ing and Rs 1,000 for each ex­tra tonne. “As per court guide­lines, the truck was fined an ad­di­tional Rs 20,000 for not cov­er­ing the con­struc­tion ma­te­rial it was car­ry­ing, which re­sults in air pol­lu­tion,” a trans­port depart­ment of­fi­cial said.

“Over­loaded trucks are one of the most dan­ger­ous ve­hi­cles on the roads and lead to nu­mer­ous fa­tal acci

dents. We carry out spe­cial drives against over­loaded trucks,” he said.

“While we had caught and fined the truck on Wed­nes­day night, the truck’s owner paid the to­tal fine amount of Rs 2,00,500 at the Ro­hini court on Thurs­day,” he added.

On Septem­ber 5, a goods truck reg­is­tered in Ra­jasthan was slapped a fine of Rs 1.4 lakh for be­ing over­loaded and other of­fences. “Apart from be­ing fined for over­load­ing, the ve­hi­cle was also pe­nalised for other of­fences in­clud­ing miss­ing doc­u­ments,” an of­fi­cial said. The truck was fined a to­tal of Rs 1,41,700. “The fine was paid at the Ro­hini court,” he said.
