Also, Madhya Pradesh Transport Minister Govind Singh Rajput today termed the act as a 'Tughlaqi' order.
"The Union government's Motor Vehicle Act is a 'Tughlaqi' order. Most of the fines are more than what a common man can afford. I don't want the people of Madhya Pradesh to face such hefty fines that they can't even afford. I will discuss the issue with Chief Minister Kamal Nath regarding the same," the minister told ANI.
The new Motor Vehicles Act has enhanced the penalties for driving errors. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways had notified the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Amendment Act 2019 last month and it was implemented in many states of India from September 1.
