What is the fine if one is caught using a vehicle that is banned?

Vehicles found plying in violation of the rule will be prosecuted under the Motor Vehicles Act, which could invite a fine of 20,000. Vehicles deployed for emergency services and government or election-related work are exempted.

How to know which BS stage is your vehicle?

Finding the BS stage of a vehicle is quite simple. The registration certificate of the vehicle clearly mentions the BS stage of the vehicle. Moreover, the pollution certificate of the vehicle also states the BS stage of the vehicle. So, a person can check these documents for the BS stage. It is important to note that there are some rare cases in which the BS stage is not mentioned on the registration certificate. So, it is better that such vehicle is not used on public roads during the ban.
