Stricter norms for overloading

In a major move to deter plying of overloaded vehicles on highways, the National Highways Authority of India has decided to force them off the roads till the extra load is removed at the cost and risk of the transporters. There would also be levying penal charges of ten times the applicable fee at the toll plazas that is presently be+ing imposed on overloaded vehicles.

The overloaded vehicles will not be allowed to cross the toll plaza but will be towed away and parked at designated place at the owner/driver’s risk and cost. If the vehicle remains unclaimed for seven days, it will be handed over to the concerned police station.
