    News About Maharashtra RTO

    • RTO vehicles in Maharashtra to install cameras

      The Maharashtra state government has instructed RTO vehicles to install cameras along with Digital Video Recorder (DVR) machines when authorities take action against vehicle drivers who are carrying a load beyond the permissible limit. The authorities have to ensure they get a recording of the overloaded vehicle, and the action being taken, for future use. Another instruction provided by the state is for RTOs to file an FIR with respect to motorists who are carrying load over the permitted limit, under the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act.

      Under section 113 and section 114 of the Motor Vehicles Registration 1988, action can be taken against freight vehicles carrying excessive load. When caught, drivers can offload the excess goods and pay a fine to the RTO officials. The case can be taken up at the court if the driver refuses to pay the fine. The RTO authorities or the flying squad will be in charge of taking action against overloaded vehicles. They would be required to carry portable weighing machines to weigh the goods and estimate the load on the vehicle.
