Gujarat Traffic Rules

The Government of India after witnessing a rise in road accidents resulting in severe injuries and deaths amended the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. The amendments came into effect on September 1, 2019. The amendment made the people of Gujarat more aware of carrying the mandatory documents with them while driving/riding on the roads of Gujarat. This practice helped them to avoid the Gujarat traffic challan.

However, the increased penalties by the Government of India seemed too much as it imposed unbearable expenditure for the people of Gujarat. Keeping the welfare of the citizens in mind, Vijay Rupani headed the state government reduced the Gujarat traffic challan amount up to 90% of the updated challans amount.

The reduction in the challan rates ranges from 25% to 90% and it will depend upon the severity of the violation.

Documents Required to Avoid Gujarat Traffic Challan

As per the rules of Gujarat traffic, every owner/driver has to carry these documents.

  • Registration Certificate (RC)
  • License to drive
  • Third-party liability insurance
  • Pollution under control (PUC)

If any of the drivers/owners of a vehicle are caught without any of these documents, then the traffic police will issue a challan to that defaulter.
