In terms of traffic congestion, Delhi stood in 8th place amongst 416 cities globally. After seeing a decline in road traffic congestion during the pandemic, it has crawled back to pre-pandemic levels.

Moreover, with the farmer’s protest going on at the Ghazipur border, the traffic is diverted to Akshardham for Noida. Traffic stays affected on Road no. 56 from Ghazipur to ISBT Anand Vihar due to the border closure, making an already bad traffic state worse.

Revised New Delhi traffic fines

The New Delhi traffic fines have been effective since January 2021. The fine for violating the stop line is ₹ 500 while driving without PUC is ₹ 2000. Moreover, the fine for red light jumping is fixed as ₹ 1000, while the fine for breaking the speed limit stands as ₹ 2000.

Traffic fines in other cities

Similar to the renewed Delhi traffic fines, a few other Indian cities have seen changes with their traffic laws.

  • The Uttarakhand state government has made changes in the Motor Vehicle Act, like decreasing the fine to ₹2,500 from ₹5,000 and decreasing the fine for driving with an expired license from ₹10,000 to ₹5000. Also, the fine for talking on the phone while driving was reduced to ₹1,000 from ₹5,000.
  • The Gujarat state government was amongst the first states to modify the Motor Vehicle Act. It decreased the fines for driving without a helmet or a seatbelt from ₹1,000 to ₹500, and fines for triple riding a two-wheeler to ₹100 from ₹1,000.

During the pandemic, traffic congestion hit an all-time low across the globe. In Indian cities like Mumbai and Delhi, the air was clearer due to the lesser number of vehicles on the road. However, with the lockdown lifted up, traffic congestion is back in most cities, Delhi included.
