Thiruvananthapuram: Motor vehicle department officials have suspended road inspection and fines. This is in line with the government’s direction not to impose fines until after Onam. Meanwhile, the squads assigned for inspection have not been withdrawn. The directive is to educate those who violate the law.
If you are penalized because you have been notified by the new rate, you can only buy higher. This was followed by a verbal directive to stop the inspection. Five days after the fine was imposed, more than half a million rupees was imposed.
