Those who are caught in drunk and drive tests for the first time may get some respite. The officials are planning to let them off with a fine rather than imprisonment. It was decided to have a Mega Lok Adalat on the 12th of next month and bring such cases to conclusion. The Telangana Legal Services Authority (TLSA) has sent proposals to this effect as a huge number of cases are pending in special courts. 


With the approval, the settlement process began. Drunk and Drive offenders are being fined Rs 10,000 for the first time as well as imprisonment in tune with the amount of alcohol found in the blood samples. With the latest decision, such people are getting the option of getting out with a fine of Rs 2,000, regardless of the amount of alcohol in their blood.


Currently, those who are caught for the first time are also being remanded as per the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act in Telangana. It is estimated that nearly one and a half lakh cases have been pending in the courts across the state in the last five years since 2016. However, there has been widespread criticism of showing generosity in such cases. This is the first time in the history of the state that such a decision has been taken.
