PANAJI: The Goa government has decided to further postpone the implementation of the Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Act, 2019, to next year, minister of transport Mauvin Godinho said on Monday.
The “informal decision” has been made to implement the new fines and new regulations from April next year onwards, he said.
The new law came into force on September 1, 2019, and all states were expected to implement it. But after some governments, including Gujarat and Uttarakhand, raised concerns about some of the hiked fines, they lowered penalties for certain traffic violations.
The state cabinet on Wednesday is likely to decide on the implementation of the amended Motor Vehicles Act with “bare minimum” fines for traffic violators.
