Any victim can take legal help through an advocate by moving objection/reply to their respective challan, if police had done violation or misbehaved with you.
Advocate in supreme court stated that police has no right to cut challan if any driver did not have any document with him. Under section 139 of the MV Act, it is allowed to produce document within 15days to RTO office or to Magistrate in case police had cut the challan for non-availability of documents. Therefore magistrate had to free him without imposing any fine on him.
This is in response to a number of grievances and RTI applications received in the ministry where citizens have raised the issue that the documents available in DigiLocker or the mParivahan app are not considered valid by the traffic police or the motor vehicles department when asked to produce.
“The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways”(MoRTH) has issued an advisory to states to accept Driving Licence, Registration Certificate or other documents in ‘electronic form’ presented through DigiLocker or mParivahan platform as valid under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and treat them at par with the certificates issued by the transport authorities,” according to the ministry’s statement.
