‘O brother, take a look’, if you break the rule, now you will have to pay a fine of 5 thousand, not 500


Kolkata: In order to reduce road accidents, the West Bengal government has decided to increase the traffic violation fines under the Motor Vehicles Act. This information was given in a notification. The central government had increased the fine in 2019, but the West Bengal government’s Mamata Banerjee government had not yet increased the fine, citing ‘difficulties being faced by the common man’.

Violating the rules of driving on the road will attract a fine ranging between Rs 500 and Rs 1,000, while those without car insurance will have to pay Rs 2,000 and for speeding on the road, Rs 5,000.
