Tamil Nadu Traffic Police Challan Rates List 2022

Tamil Nadu is infamous for the maximum number of road accidents in the country, and the most common reason for road accidents is over speeding. Keeping this in mind, in 2019, the Central Government amended the MVA, 1988. Since, the update of MVA, the fines, and penalties for the violation of traffic rules was increased manifold. This was done to make people responsible for their actions and follow road safety rules and regulations.

Chennai Traffic Police also mandates drivers/riders to carry a valid driver’s license, RC, PUC certificate, and vehicle insurance. Traffic police have the right to demand to see any of these documents. If a driver or rider is unable to present the documents, a challan will be issued in his name for the violation of the Chennai traffic rules. A traffic challan ranges from Rs. 500 to up to Rs. 1 lakh depending upon the severity of the penalty. In some cases, the driver’s license can be suspended, or he has to serve jail time as well.
