After centre asked the Maharashtra government to implement the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, State Transport Minister Anil Parab on Thursday said that the department will revert to centre’s letter on the same issue. 

The Shiv Sena leader said that he has sought details from the department. However, Parab is of an opinion that the traffic fines should be proportionate to the violations. 

Under the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act of 2019, the fines for traffic violations have been increased dramatically by the central government.

Speaking on this, Maharashtra Transport Minister Anil Parab said that the quantum of punishment should be proportionate to the violation.

You can’t hand a petty thief. The quantum of punishment should be proportionate to the violation. If we think that it is not in the current law and that the fines are high, we will communicate the same to the central government,” Times of India quoted Anil Parab.
