The government has announced a clearance scheme on pending vehicle challans in the state. The offer lasted for 45 days. Most of the challans were not paid even after the deadline. Nearly 30 percent of the challans were found to be pending. With this, the police kept an eye on the vehicles with pending challans. They are getting ready to organize special drives for this.
More than Rs 3 crore was cleared through the scheme that lasted for a month and a half. About 65 percent of the cleared vehicles are cars. Over 70 percent of the two-wheelers paid the pending challans. Of the Rs 1,700 crore worth of pending challans, Rs 1,400 crore was collected. Rs 312 crore was collected after the discount.
Even after the end of the government subsidy, another 30 percent of motorists are still roaming the roads without paying their dues. With this, the police paid special attention to these vehicles. They are ready to perform special drives and clear challans. Traffic Joint CP Ranganath said cases would be registered against those who roamed the roads without paying the fines and legal action would be taken.
