Section 192 MV Act

The Indian government decided to make certain changes to the motor vehicle rules and regulations to make it more relevant in today’s time. Due to the rise in motor vehicles on Indian roads, the mishap rates in India has significantly increased. To get the situation under control, it was necessary to make the road safety rules more stringent.

Often, people tend to break the traffic safety rules unknowingly. It is thus essential to have at least a basic idea of certain rules under the Motor Vehicle Act. In this article, we will be discussing Section 192 of the Motor Vehicle Act.

What is Section 192 of the Motor Vehicle Act?

The Section 192 MV Act is for driving motor vehicles without registration, and it goes as follows -

  1. If any individual drives a vehicle or permits the vehicle to be used in contravention of the provision of Section 39, is liable for punishment.

    1. For the first offence - the individual guilty of the offence will have to pay a penalty between INR 2000 and INR 5000 and/or imprisonment of three months.

    2. For the second and subsequent offence - the individual guilty of the offence will have to pay a penalty of INR 10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

  2. Nothing under this section is applicable for vehicles used in case of emergencies such as the conveyance of people suffering from sickness or injuries. The same is followed in case of transportation of food or materials to relieve distress or of medical goods for the same purpose. However, the individual using the vehicle in case of such emergencies will have to report about the same to the Regional Transport Authority within 7 days from the date of such use.

Importance of Section 192 of the Motor Vehicle Act

Whenever you buy a new motor vehicle, getting it registered at the respective RTO of the State is essential. A valid vehicle registration certificate obtained from the RTO can be asked by traffic police. Apart from this, you will have to present other documents like driving licence, motor insurance policy, PUC certificate, etc.

Driving an unregistered vehicle is illegal and a punishable crime under Section 192 of the Motor Vehicles Act. The penalties imposed for violation of this section are discussed below.

Penalties Under Section 192 of the Motor Vehicle Act
