As stated in the Times of India, State Transport Commissioner Shekar Channe stated that insurance is an important aspect of every vehicle on road. Mumbaikars will have to compulsorily get the vehicle insured. He further stated that car dealers have insurance as a part of the on-road pricing of any vehicle, but there have been buyers who fail to renew the insurance once it expires after 1-3 years.

The transport department has linked its Vahan software to the national insurance database, and officials can now use their mobile to check if a car is insured by keying in its registration number. Earlier this week, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) revised its parking fines wherein it will now charge up to ₹4,000 for illegal parking within 500 metres of a public parking lot in the city, and up to ₹8,000 for illegal parking on five arterial roads, which were marked as no-parking zones last year. Further, it has also announced that there will be a parking fee of ₹100 in Public Parking Lots (PPL) for six to 12 hours which will be the base fees.
