Endangering the lives of passengers/ commuters, besides enhancing pollution levels, there was a loss of revenue to the state exchequer to the tune of Rs 122.19 crores.
In terms of the MV Act, 1988 read with Rule 62 of the CMV Rules, 1989, a transport vehicle shall not be deemed to be validly registered unless it carries a certificate of fitness which remains valid initially for two years and thereafter is to be renewed every year after payment of prescribed fee.
Fee for grant or renewal of certificate of fitness at the rate Rs 200 per vehicle; for conducting test of a vehicle for grant or renewal of certificate of fitness: Three wheeler/ LMV/ quadricycle: Rs 400 (Manual); Medium or HMV: Rs 600 (Manual); Additional Fee of Rs 25 for each day of delay after expiry of certificate of fitness (effective from 15th January 2018, Rs 50 prior to that). The MV Act, 1988 prescribes the procedure for granting of permits. In terms of the section 81 of the above Act, a permit other than a temporary permit14 shall be valid for a period of five years and the application for its renewal is to be submitted 15 days before its expiry. Rules 79 and 80 of the JKMV Rules, 1991 inter alia prescribe the rates of application fee, permit fee, renewal fee as well as additional fee for delayed application for renewal of permits. Transport Commissioner deals with issue/ renewal of National/ All India/ All J&K State route permits. The route permits within a District are issued/ renewed by the respective RTOs/ ARTOs. Although the details regarding issuance/ renewal of District route permits issued in 20 (out of 22) districts of Jammu and Kashmir are available on VAHAN, the details in respect of National/ All India/ All J&K State route permits issued by the Transport Commissioner were not available on the VAHAN till the report was filed.
It was further informed that Non-monitoring of surrender of RC and absence of provision regarding generation of Reports in VAHAN 1.0 resulted in non re-registration of non-transport vehicles. It is pertinent to mention that VAHAN 4.0 can generate reports, date-wise and registration number wise, to list out vehicles whose re-registration is due.
