Implementation of Motor Vehicles Act may delayed

GOA:  The implementation of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, in the state may be further delayed. Though the act was out last year, the file was kept pending in Goa to decide whether to reduce some of the fines. “Everything is ready. We have decided the new rates for fines. However, due to the pandemic the matter was kept on hold,” a transport official said.

“The validity of documents which was extended to September 30 has now been further extended to December 31. This has changed the situation. The notification to implement the act is therefore delayed,” he said. Validity of documents like driving licences, permits, registrations and fitness certificates that expired since February 1 are being treated as valid till December 31 owing to the pandemic. These are documents whose validity could not be extended or is not likely to be processed due to lockdown restrictions.

“Even if we publish the notification saying the act is to be implemented from October and there are more changes in other areas of the department, we will have to issue a fresh notification saying the implementation has been kept in abeyance. Instead, we have kept the notification itself on hold. When it is decided to implement it, we will immediately notify it,” he said.
