There has been a lot of buzz around the new Motor Vehicle Amendment Act 2019. Starting September 1st
2019, the fines have been increased, ensuring that the people do not violate the rules and stay safe. This new amendment has come into play to check the accident rates and make sure of road safety.
It is mandatory to have a two wheeler insurance to ride the vehicle on road. If you do not have insurance, you are liable to pay a fine of Rs. 2000 and/or face imprisonment for up to 3 months. For the second offence, the fine will increase to Rs. 4000 and/or 3 months imprisonment. It is hence better to go for an insurance rather than pay the penalties. The subsequent fines have resulted in renewal and buying of insurance policies.
The process of renewing an old policy is very easy and quick. It is completely digitized and you can get this done from your smart phone
itself. It is always better to update or buy the insurance rather than pay the fine.
For Ravi Mathur staying in Mumbai, he thanked his stars that he renewed his two wheeler insurance just one day before 1st
September. The traffic police caught him and he had all the papers with him and the renewed two wheeler insurance too. Had he not got it renewed for a minimum amount, he would have paid the fine of Rs. 2000 and/ or faced 3 months imprisonment.
When it comes to road accidents, two wheelers are the most prone to it. It is important to buy a holistic insurance policy which protects you from accidents and other dangers such as natural or man-made calamities. Along with this, your vehicle is protected against theft and third party liability. Hence investing in a comprehensive insurance policy is totally worth it.
