Failure to Keep Mandatory Accessories

In India, certain accessories are mandatory for vehicles to ensure the safety of the driver and other road users. These mandatory accessories include a valid registration certificate, insurance certificate, pollution under control (PUC) certificate, and a driver’s license.

If a driver is found to be driving a vehicle without these mandatory accessories, they may be fined. The fine amount may vary from state to state, but it can range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 5,000 or more depending on the type of violation.

In addition to these mandatory accessories, certain other accessories are also required for specific types of vehicles. For example, two-wheeler riders must wear helmets, and commercial vehicles must have a fitness certificate.
