"The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has over the last few months captured images of as many as 1 lakh traffic violators through over a hundred cameras placed on a trial basis at various chowks on the busiest streets of the city as part of the Intelligent Transport System (ITS). PMC is, however, yet to put the system in place whereby it can penalise traffic offenders. The civic body plans to appoint a private agency for the operation and management of ITS, with its control room to be located at PMPML's Swargate depot.
"As part of our trials, we have collected images of as many as 1 lakh traffic violators for offences like speeding and breaking the signals. However, we do not intend to initiate action against them. A tripartite agreement will come into effect among PMC, police and a private agency for this purpose," said Mangesh Dighe, a civic official, looking after the ITS. He added, "We have floated a tender for this task and have asked agencies to submit their bids by the first week of September. This private agency will be authorised to issue challans against the traffic violators and then forward the matter to the traffic police, who will take further action. The legal authority will rest with the traffic police," Dighe said."

In Hyderabad also cameras were installed at major junctions. Everyday I see flash lights when I'm returning home from office. Its like walking on a red carpet

This happened to one of my cousine . He is a Student in Erode and while he leave his home in Thrissur he use to keep the bike inside the home and no one even touch that . The RTO Guys send him a summons saying that his bike number is booked for parking in a no parking area and ask him to pay a fine of Rs 100 . Even if he tried to explain the situation they were not ready to leave ,due to frustration and after all its a matter of Rs 100 he paid that and closed the case.

Another instance is that one of the Taxi in which my uncle was travelling was stopped by some police on NH 47 and they told that they have not given side for a fire force vehicle . Actually they noted the number wrongly instead of Number 700 they noted 7000 since the vehicle was of differnt model after a negotiation for 2 hrs they left him .

Kerala Traffic police is so pathetic in traking down the right vehicle

RTO can't just assume if it was the owner indeed and have his license cancelled. If this case gets to the court its the RTO who's gonna lose if they can't prove it was indeed him. OP can furninsh enough proof, with the help of a lawyer, that he was at someplace else.

Thank you all for the responses.

Today morning I came to know about the same incident happened to another vehicle. It was a school bus and the RTO guys sent a registered similar to mine to them. The headmistress who is known to me luckily has an evidence (trip sheet) that the bus was running in a different route other than the place which the RTO people have mentioned in the summons note.

What I am going to do is publish this incident in a leading newspaper with instances from other people also in it. This will help in somewhat stopping them from issuing such summons to others at least.

So, just so we dont generalize.
Yeap, I came to know about another incident today morning. I have put the details in another reply.

I feel this is a new technique to meet the monthly targets of vehicle inspectors.

Nor will you be able to produce witnesses or alibis vouching for you. Heck, I can't remember what I was doing last week at this time, let alone six months ago!
This can be taken into the court, but again I would need to spent time and energy for filing a suit. The reason for sending the summons after 6 months, you got it right, you will not know in which all routes you went 6 months back. The interesting thing is that they have selected a Sunday for me otherwise I could prove that I was at office. they are thinking wisely

Since the bike is mine, the responsibility lies with me.

I have the receipt and original letter with me. Again, time and energy need to be spent pulling me in backfoot.

Exclamation

This is shocking.

But ,from the past 1-2 Months ,Even in Small towns, Helmet Checking is Very Strict(A good thing).But ,If what thread starter has told is true ,It is a Perpetration and Media must bring out this.This Much Strictness?!!I am now worried of the Traffic Police Men/Women carrying paper piece and pen in every junctions!

OT:Anyone Heard DL tests are now only done in One Centre for Each Districts in Kerala with License issued/rejected their itself? Seems Like Government is On a Drive to Clean Up the mess in RTA in kerala.

Now for each RTO, there are sub RTOs for every district. In Trivandrum, there is a main RTO and 4 sub RTOs. The DL tests are done at each of these centers and licenses will be issued/rejected on spot.

You say makes sense, Sankar. However, i still believe the eventual responsibility rests with the person on whose name the vehicle is registered?

Another example to think of : When we sell a vehicle, and havent updated the new owner details, and the vehicle is involved in nefarious activities, who gets pulled up?

I make it a point to photocopy all the signed document including, ownership transfer form with new owner's address filled in, sale deed and delivery note. This is enough in most cases.

In such a scenario original owner should be able to prove to the cops who come knocking on your door to whom you sold the vehicle to. If there's no record and the ownership is still in original owner's name then the guy would be in a soup.

It is so nice to learn many good things and the tricks of Police. The innocents are caught for nothing and the law breakers are let free. So sad of our system. I was on over speed in OMR. The police came with the camera and showed the speed was 65. That was true no arguments I paid the fine honestly and appreciated them.
