      Delhi Traffic Rules

      The Central Government made some changes in the traffic fines after witnessing a rise in road fatalities. The amendment in the Motor Vehicle Act 1988 came into effect on September 1, 2019. The vehicle owners in the capital city started taking traffic rules a bit more seriously and made sure to carry mandatory documents like driving license, registration certificate, pollution under control certificate and insurance. This has been helping them avoid the Delhi traffic challan.

      However, some states like Karnataka, Kerala, Gujarat after witnessing the unaffordable hikes in the traffic fines made changes in their states so that the middle class and lower-middle-class people can afford to pay for the fines. But Delhi did not make any changes in the traffic fines and the amended traffic rules and fines were implemented in the Union Territory of Delhi.

      Documents Required to Avoid Delhi Traffic Challan

      According to the rules applied by Delhi traffic police, vehicle owners must carry the following documents while driving on the roads of Delhi.
