Traffic Challan New Rule: Even if you are talking on a mobile phone while driving, the traffic police can’t deduct your challan. According to the central government, if a traffic policeman cuts your challan, you can challenge him in court.
Mr. Nitin Gadkari, Union Road Transport and Highways Minister, said that according to the existing traffic rules if the driver uses a hands-free communication feature (Hands-Free Calls) while driving a car, talking to someone on a phone is not an offense. As a result, the driver will not have to pay any fines.
Gadkari said there was no punishment provision
In the Lok Sabha, the Congress MP from Ernakulam, Kerala Hibi Eden inquired whether section-84(c) of the Motor Vehicles Act provides for the use of hands-free communication in motor vehicles. Is there any penalty? In response, Union Minister Gadkari pointed out that the Act punishes drivers who use handheld communication devices while driving. You cannot be penalized for using hands-free communication devices.
