At Rs 1.41 Lakh, Rajasthan Vehicle Creates New Record For Highest Traffic Fine in India

This is the highest challan issued ever since the new motor vehicles bill has come into action.


A vehicle registered in Rajasthan has created a new record for receiving the highest fine for traffic violations under the new Motor Vehicles Act.

This is the highest challan issued ever since the new motor vehicles bill has come into action. The fine has been deposited by certain Bhagwan Ram as seen on the fine receipt.
On closer inspection, the central vehicle registration database reveals that the vehicle is a Tata 4018.s heavy duty truck registered under the Bikaner RTO in Rajasthan.
Earlier a truck driver with a vehicle bearing a Nagaland registration number was fined a whopping Rs 86,500 by the Regional Transport Officer in Sambalpur district of Odisha.
