According to a press communiqué issued by the SP Kohima, a fine of Rs.500 after a period of one week would be imposed after a week for non-compliance and ‘willful’ disobedience of the authority, second offence would invite a penalty double the amount of first offence according to relevant Motor Vehicle Act if committed during the pendency of the first offence by the same defaulter, section 179 MV Act would be imposed in addition. The communiqué also stated that on commission of a third offence during the pendency of the first and second offence, one week period would be given for settlement of the case for which non-compliance would result in the legal process of cancellation of the driving license under section 19 (1) (a) MV Act 1988. Further, the entire exercise would be monitored from SP’s office through a central computerized data base, added the communiqué.
