Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government, which had given a three-month breather to the people to update their vehicle documents, made it clear on Friday that there will be no revision in penalties for traffic violations.
“The penalties will be collected from traffic violators as per the new Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019 from December 1. I request the people to strictly adhere to the road safety guidelines,” Commerce and Transport Minister Padmanabha Behera told mediapersons here.
Taking note of the statewide protests against the inordinate delay in getting driving licenses, vehicle pollution certificates and other documents, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had ordered a three-month relaxation and requested the people to get their documents by December 1.
To facilitate the people in obtaining their documents in time, the transport department had opened temporary driving license camps across the state.
