New delhi sources stated that the driver and owner of a truck have been fined a whopping Rs. 2 lakh in delhi for multiple violations under a traffic law amended by the centre earlier this year. While the driver was fined Rs. 1.31 lakh for overloading and other traffic violations, the owner was asked to cough up Rs. 69,500 as penalty and this is the highest fine reported so far ever since the stringent traffic rules came into effect on September 1.
Meanwhile the truck which is registered in Haryanawas fined at the GT Karnal Road on Wednesday and the total amount was paid by the owner of the truck, news agency PTI reported. This comes days after a truck owner had to pay Rs. 1,41,000 in Rajasthan for violating several traffic rules. Another truck driver in Odisha was fined over Rs. 80,000 earlier this week.
The implementation of new rules has created a furor across the nation, with political parties slamming the centre for introducing the hefty fines. A number of states have chosen not to implement the centre's rules. States such as Madhya Pradesh, kerala and delhi ruled by the opposition have hinted that they may not impose the fines. Moreover West Bengal Chief Minister mamata banerjee has flatly rejected any possibility of the people in her state being forced to cough up such "harsh" penalties.
