Default Let's know the law (Motor Vehicles Act)

Though we face lot of issues with the cops, do we really know what the law states ? I could not find a thread on various rules of the Motor Vehicles Act. Thought this should be a useful piece of gyan. A bit loooooong though.

Some of the important provisions of Indian Motor Vehicles Act which the general public must know are given below:

Section 3: It is an offence to drive a vehicle without Driving Licence.

Section 4: Age limit for obtaining driving licence -
Two Wheelers below 50 CC -16 years
Other Motor Vehicles - 18 years
Transport Vehicle - 20 years

Section 5: Owner not to allow any person to drive the vehicle without Driving Licence ( D.L ). Example - If son/daughter is driving a vehicle owned by parent without D.L, parent can be prosecuted, though the parent may not be present at the time of the offence.

Section 19: The Regional Transport Officer (RTO) can disqualify persons from holding driving licence or revoke the same if the person
- is a habitual criminal or habitual drunkard
- is a habitual addict to any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance within the meaning of the Narcotic Drugsand Psychotropic Substance Act, 1985 (61 of 1985)
- is using or has used a motor vehicle in the commission of a cognizable offence
- has by his previous conduct as driver of a motor vehicle shown that his driving is likely to be attended with danger to the public
- has committed any such act which is likely to cause nuisance or danger to the public.

Section 20: On conviction of an offence under Motor Vehicles Act or an offence in the commission of which a motor vehicle was used, the Court can disqualify the person concerned from holding driving licence apart from imposing any other punishment.

For the following offences, disqualification is mandatory -

i) not stopping the vehicle when required to do so by any Police Officer not below the rank of Police Sub-Inspector in uniform if the vehicle is involved in a road accident (Section 132)

ii) not shifting the victim of the accident in which his or her vehicle is involved to the nearest Hospital/ Medical Practitioner (Section 134)

iii) not giving, on demand by a Police Officer, any information required by him (Section 134)

iv) not reporting the occurrence of accident to insurer (Section 134)

v) driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs (Section 185)

vi) driving dangerously (Section 184)

vii) racing and trials of speed (Section 189)

viii) using vehicle without registration (Section 192)

Section 21: If a person already convicted once for dangerous driving under Section 184, again indulges in dangerous driving causing death or grievous hurt and if a case is registered for the second offence, the driving licence of the person is automatically suspended for a maximum period of 6 months or till disposal of the case in the Court.

Section 22:
i) If a person is convicted for second time for dangerous driving under Section 184, the Court can cancel the driving licence

ii) If a person is convicted for the second time for drunken driving under Section 185, the Court shall cancel the driving licence of the person concerned

Section 39: No person shall drive any motor vehicle and no owner shall cause or permit any vehicle to be driven without proper registration and display of the registration mark. If a vehicle is plying without proper registration, owner can be prosecuted though he/she may not be present at the time of offence.

Section 49: The change of address recorded in the Registration Certificate shall be reported within 30 days of any such change.

In such claims, the claimant shall not be required to plead and establish that the death or permanent disablement was due to any wrongful act, neglect or default of the owner of the vehicle involved.

Section 121: Signaling by the driver regarding his intentions to stop or take a left or right turn is mandatory. If he does not do so, the driver can be prosecuted.


I assume that the "Brake" lights and "Turn" signals are sufficient signals by the driver. Does this section also mean that the vehicle owners should ensure that all their lights / indicators are working? (I'm thinking about the trucks without tail lights on all major highways!)

Section 140: Where death or permanent disablement of any person has resulted from a road accident, the owner of the vehicle involved shall be liable to pay compensation in respect of such death or disablement irrespective of his/her fault. The compensation for death shall be Rs. 50,000/- and for permanent disablement Rs. 25,000/-.

In such claims, the claimant shall not be required to plead and establish that the death or permanent disablement was due to any wrongful act, neglect or default of the owner of the vehicle involved. The claim shall not be defeated by reason of any wrongful act, neglect or default of the person in respect of whose death or permanent disablement, the claim has been made. Besides the owner of the vehicle, the Insurance Company is also liable under this section.


This is really scary! If some jackass decides to walk in front of my car while showing the "magic hand" (the signal to stop) while I'm on a fast busy road, I end up compensating HIM / HER for it???

Section 182(a): Whoever alters the construction of the vehicle without prior approval of the competent authority shall be punishable with fine of Rs. 1,000/- for the first offence and with a fine of Rs. 5,000/- for any subsequent offence.


This can be misused by the cops to extort money... who defines what "altering the construction" means? If I upsize my tyres, add in a spoiler etc. etc. at what point would it be deemed that I have "altered the construction"?

Section 190: Punishment for violation of the standards prescribed in relation to road safety, control of noise and air pollution is fine amount upto Rs.1000/- for the first offence and Rs. 2000/- for the subsequent offence.


Spot PUC checks, I can understand, but what are the other standards? Do the cops have equipment to check and specifications to decide whether a given vehicle is "loud"?

A general opinion I have about the fines: They are ridiculously low!

Not that I'm loaded or anything such... but many of the fines for even serious offenses are cheaper than a tank of gas! What's the use of having such fines, they are not a deterrent at all ! ... and the "compensation" amounts are even worse! These may have been ok in 1970, but with the value of the rupee falling (and salarys rising), they are too low in the present times.

I think that the fines are quite useless... the offender should be forced to do "community service" instead. This would work as a deterrant especially well in India, where the high and mighty would not be caught dead doing "low" jobs like cleaning up their own paan stains or picking up the garbage they have thrown out their million$$$ rides.

Unhappy Complete List of Traffic Rules

Well, I was stopped a couple of days ago by a cop near BKC for having an 'illegal' license plate. The license plates on my Swift has a small but prominent Suzuki "S" logo on the left hand side. The cop claimed that having any kind of logo on the license plate is illegal.

Maruti gave me the car with the logo on the plate. Point is, how does an end user know what is allowed and what is not? Or are the cops inventing new rules just to make some easy extra bucks [I had to pay the cop 100 rupees to get out of this one, unofficial, of course]?

I asked him this. He told me to go to the nearest chowki and ask his senior about all the traffic rules. Huh? Is there a better way?

Yes. It is the responsibility of the owners to ensure that all lights/indicators are working properly. But in our country, who cares ?

In India too (as in US) pedestrians have the right of way means we need to stop if we see anyone crossing the road. But again with the kind of population and the state of the roads who cares ?

If you look at various sections of MVA, many of them are not clearly defined and can be interpreted in more than one way. The law itself needs an overhaul.

No. Apparently our politicians and bureaucrats doesn't leave any corpus for traffic dept..sad..

True. With todays scenario of rapid development, the MVA itself needs frequent updates (may be atleast once in 5 years if not more)... The MVA was last updated during 1988-89 timeframe.

Yes. The vol should be low such that it do not cause distraction of other drivers on the road. But again there are no numbers defined in the law.

Here's some additional information.

The RTO office enforces the law on Indian roads, and the law that governs the Indian roads is the Motor Vehicles Act (MVA) and the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR). Knowing the MVA and the CMVR can help you understand your rights and liabilities as a driver in India.

The Motor Vehicles Act (MVA) 1914 / 1939 and 1988 - The law for operation for all motor vehicles in India.
The Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR) 1994 - Rules that stipulate various procedures with reference to the MVA 1988
The State Motor Vehicles Rules - Rules framed by various state governments in accordance with the MVA and CMVR to suit local conditions of the state.

Some of the important rules of CMVR that we must know:

Car Registration Mark (Rule 50,51 CMV Rules)
The registration number displayed must confirm to following specifications:
Letters: 4.5 cm high / 1 cm thick
Numerals: 6 cm high / 1 cm thick
Space between letters / numerals should not be less than 1 cm.

The colour scheme for Non-Transport vehicles (Section 118 MVAct):
Permanent Registration - White on Black Plate.
Temporary Number - Red on Yellow Plate.
Fancy lettering, raised or shining metal numbers are not permitted. The plate should not have any line, or colour, or any other kind of marking on it.

Lamps and additional lights (Rules 105-108,111 CMV Rules)
* Spotlights, search lights, fancy lights, mercury lamps are expressly forbidden.
* Dome lights are not permitted unless specially authorised.
* A reversing white light is permitted provided the light is diffused and not too bright.

Rear View Mirror (Rule 125 CMV Rules)
Every motor vehicle, except motor cycles, must be fitted with a rear view mirror in such a way that the driver has a clear vision of the traffic behind.

Horns (Rule 119 CMV Rules)
No vehicle is allowed to be fitted with any multitone horn. Horns producing musical notes, unduly harsh, loud, shrill or alarming noises fall in this category.

Tinted Glasses (Rule 100 CMV Rules)
Tinted glasses or sun control films should not be so dark as to obscure clear vision.
Any material that reflects light is also not permitted. Use of curtains that obscure clear vision is prohibited.

TV / Video / Music (Rule 162 MMV Rules)
No TV / Video display should be placed in a vehicle in a manner that it may distract the driver. The music played in the vehicle must be kept at low levels of sound so as not to distract other drivers on the road.
