8 New Rules to keep in mind for all Motor Vehicle Owners

The Union Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has imposed significant amendments in the Central Motor Vehicle Rules 1989 effective from today in Odisha and across the country. The new amendments require the implementation of enforcement, maintenance of Vehicular Documents and E-Challans digitally. These changes are being introduced to ease the hassles faced by vehicle owners and avoid harassment of commuters while maintaining the COVID-19 protocols during any invigilation.

Here are the new changes that will be applicable from October 1:

  • The physical bearing of vehicular documents such as DL, RC, and insurance will not be needed.
  • Vehicle owners are permitted to upload and maintain a record of their vehicle’s papers on apps like Digi-locker or m-parivahan.
  • Vehicular documents found authorised through electronic means will not be demanded in physical forms for any inspection.
  • A DL can be disqualified if needed through the government’s digital portal where the details of the violator will be recorded.
  • Details of driving licenses disqualified or revoked by the licensing authority will be recorded and updated chronologically in the portal.
  • E-challans will also be registered on the government’s digital portal.
  • Violators’ records will be maintained digitally and electronically.
  • Registration of timestamp of inspection, police officer or any other concerned officer’s identity will also be recorded in the government’s portal.
