Its the same, I paid Rs 400 after recording 155kmph on their speed gun.
Never expected the speed guns in Haryana.

There are 2 havelis en route from delhi to amritsar, one is found at Karnal near Oasis / Savoy. I have not been inside there but it is the same.

The other one can be found at the entrance of Jalandhar, Big place and lot of other Dhabas there ( Lucky, Non Veg King ). Havelis is a must.

Be prepared, Haveli is a veg restaurant with excellent food, priced average, no less no more. So a must stop at least once if you are visiting Punjab.

Yes, I paid 400 Rs as well !! I was speeding and keeping speed of 130 + most of Punjab. Once out of there as soon as I came in haryana, I was doing around 110, and then this Interceptor caught me and stopped me after one km. Where there were around 15 cars standing.

Paid the 400 Rs., no arguement, no bribe ( I tried but he said NO ! ). Paid and then stuck to 80 km which was BORING !! But I found 2 more till Delhi. So at least I was taught a lesson.

I feel instead of 90 they should keep 110 as the average speed. 90 kms gets boring and you feel sleepy driving at a fixed speed ( which is more dangerous ) .

Tricks to avoid them:

While going :
The best one being is to start early from Delhi, cross Azadpur Bye-pass latest by 7 am, so one can easily cross Ambala by 9:30 to avoid them, if breakfast is planned at Murthal Dhabas/ Karnal Haveli, have one more hour in hand.

While coming back to Delhi:
In the evenings, plan from your origin station to reach Ambala after sunset!

The traffic police (interceptors) are active between 9 - 5:30

I have been doing Gurgaon-Chandigarh very frequently recently, almost 3 time in a month, but no interceptor, because I start pretty early, 4ish in the morning.

But few months back I was overtaken by few interceptor Versa at Karnal, they just warned me and left.

Later I met them in a restaurant few KM ahead, and got to know that they were recently introduced.

Recently did Delhi - Amritsar - Delhi trip, for a change via train.

What would i say about Amritsar... two things one will easily notice in Amritsar are "Ultimate Food" and "95% cars running on diesel as fuel (be it any car)". Too much crowded according to my taste but why should i care when i ain't driving one

Some random shots

vKochar,
Thanks for those photos, brought back memories of my trip to the wagah border in 2002 I think. And the food at the haveli was awesome. They had a truck inside the restaurant. The toilets were kept so clean they had a couple of staff continously cleaning it and a roster put up of who's duty at what time. We liked the food so much that we asked the management if they could open up a branch in Bombay. And the atmosphere at the wagah was more electrifying than any India Pak cricket macth. Thanks once again

Yes, the one good thing about Haveli is the cleanliess they mantain ( toilets & general ) despite the fact that they have thousands of visitors in a day.

Many just stop for a toilet break and a cup of tea.

I guess at any given time there would be more than 100 - 150 cars parked outside the haveli complex.

All throughout Punjab the food, the dhabas are excellent. no wonder it's India's wealthiest & most prosperous state.

Also I do not know if anyone noticed - BUT there are so many Sports Shops when you enter Punjab ( Reebok, Adidas ). I must have counted 20 at least till Amritsar.

I stopped at one of these ( there was a Mc Donalds next to it ) and spoke to the sports shop guy and asked him why so many shops here - he replied that the truck drivers & farmers in Punjab are crazy for wearing TrackSuits. They wear it round the year - and they sell these round the year at discounted prices. Amazing !! Most of the factories manufacturing these tracksuits are also based in Jalandar & Ludhiana.

I drove from Delhi to Amritsar on 12/13 September 2011. Eateries and petrol pumps are in plenty all along on both the sides of NH 1. We ate to the brim at Sukhdev Dhabha at Murthal in the evening located on LHS of NH 1. From Murthal to Jalandhar, I counted three McD outlets on NH 1. From Delhi to Panipat, it is super expressway. After Panipat, since road widening works are in progress, there are many diversions, but nothing to worry. Details are here (Leh in a Linea).
