The use of mobile phones while driving in Uttar Pradesh will now invite a penalty of 1,000 for the first offence and 10,000 for the second such offence, said a notification issued by the UP State Transport Department.

The decision to impose such a hefty fine came following a cabinet meeting in mid-June this year. The notification issued on Thursday also said that riding without a helmet will draw a thousand rupee fine as well.
