Please clarify your application of penalties on criminals who submit renewal applications by mistake with delay. Such initiatives are most essential because of deep-rooted corruption in the government of Uttar Pradesh where to make registration information online Rs.2700 is charged from aggrieved.

Sir you did not tell us about the maximum penalty limit in your notification is the matter of great concern. You should tell us the maximum penalty can be imposed by the staff of R.T.O.? As renewal fee of driving license is 200, how many thousands can be imposed by the staff of R.T.O. on the criminals who made a delay in submitting renewal applications because many are illiterate and not informed about memo, circulars and notifications issued by the government. Even literate criminals are not updated if they do not interact with brokers and bobudome of R.T.O.

Since the matter concerns deep rooted corruption, therefore the maximum penalty limit in case of renewal of registration certificate for both Goods Carrier and non Goods carrier must be accessible in public domain. Please provide the limit of maximum penalty can be imposed on the criminals not applying timely for renewal of Registration both in case of Goods Carrier and non Goods carrier whether it may exceed the sale value of vehicle as can not be paid even after selling the vehicle.

Why are warnings not made on the registration certificates issued R.T.Os. of the vehicles in regard to heavy penalties in case delay in submission of renewal of the application? Vide attached document to be apprised with rampant corruption prevailed in the working of the R.T.Os.

The union ministry issued a notification on December 29, 2016 by way of which the fee charged for driving license and vehicle registration was revised and increased several fold. By the said amendment a new provision for levying additional fee in case of delay of submission of application has been made.

Honourable Sir, the applicant is making enquiry under Article 51 A of the constitution of India. This provision of constitution quotes as follows.

It shall be the duty of every citizen of India (a) to abide by the Constitution and respect its ideals and institutions, the National Flag and the National Anthem(h) to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform.

i-to safeguard public property and to abjure violence.

j -to strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity so that the nation constantly rises to higher levels of endeavour and achievement.

It is being submitted before the Honourable Sir that penalties imposed on the citizenry can be instrumental in development if it may reach to public treasury but if it will reach to the pockets of the corrupt public functionaries then even for disbursement of salary, government will request before the world bank for the loan.
