Ahmedabad RTO Tightens Rules for School Transport Vehicles

| Updated: June 11, 2024 20:42

The Ahmedabad Regional Transport Office (RTO) introduced new rules on Monday. These rules mandate a 20 km/h speed limit affidavit for obtaining fitness certificates for school transport vehicles. This increased vigilance led to stringent actions against violators, sparking concerns among members of the School Transport Association.

During a meeting with RTO officials, the association expressed its concerns and requested an extension of the deadline for obtaining fitness certificates. In response, the Ahmedabad RTO Superintendent Officer proposed a streamlined process to expedite the issuance of certificates for the city’s 15,000 school vehicles. J.J. Patel, an official from the Subhash Bridge RTO, underscored the importance of these regulations, stating that there would be no leniency in their enforcement.

Dharmendra Brahmabhatt, the head of the School Transport Association, emphasized the urgency of completing the fitness and permit process before schools reopen. He pointed out the financial burden on drivers, as the costs associated with converting private vehicles for commercial use, insurance, and other procedures can total up to ₹50,000. Recognizing that drivers might struggle to pay these costs upfront, Brahmabhatt has requested the commissioner to grant a three-month grace period for completing permits and fitness checks.
