Traffic police cannot cut challan immediately if DL, RC is not shown
Under Rule 139 of the Central Motor Vehicles Act, the driver has to give 15 days time to present the documents. The traffic police cannot immediately clear the challan. This is to say of senior advocate Prem Lata Singh. According to him, since the new Motor Vehicle Act came into force, it is not a crime if the vehicle does not show the Registration Certificate, Pollution Under Control Certificate, Driving License and Permit Certificate.
Rule 139 of the Act provides that the driver is given 15 days to present the documents. If the driver claims to show these documents in 15 days, then his traffic police or RTO will not cut the traffic. He said that Section 158 of the Act provides that the time for being an accident or showing these documents in a particular case is seven days. If the challan is still deducted, the driver has the option to dismiss it in court.
According to the lawyer, if the traffic police illegally deduct the challan, it does not mean that the driver will have to fill the challan. This challan can be challenged in court. The court feels that the driver has all the documents and if he is not given 15 days time to present these documents, he can waive the fine. Apart from this, the signature of a witness is also required in the challan. The traffic police have to produce a witness during the summary trial of the case in court. If the police fail to produce a witness, then the court can forgive the challan.
