Special drive launched to check ownership of two-wheelers

 Estimating that about 25 per cent of vehicle owners in the city do not possess ownership documents, the Mysore City Traffic Police will be conducting a special drive on April 25 and 26.
Interacting with 500 vehicle owners who have not yet transferred the ownership of the vehicles into their names, the city traffic police have warned that from May 1 such vehicles would be seized and cases would be booked.
City Police Commissioner B Dayananda has decided to address the issue seriously after realising that notices for traffic violations were sent to wrong addresses.
He noted that both sellers and buyers have failed to change their names and address in the RTO records in several cases, which would from now on would be treated stringently.
He said according to the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, Sec 50 states that the RTO should be informed about the transfer of the ownership within 14 days. Similarly, the Act also instructs the individual who transfers the ownership of the vehicle to inform the RTO about the change and produce the requisite documents within 30 days of the transfer.
This problem with regard to the ownership was highlighted when most of the notices were sent to wrong addresses. Thus, being the case we had to but act and impose stringent action against those fail to furnish proper ownership records.
Moreover, a senior police officer said that as long as the name appears in the RC book that person though he or she may have sold the vehicle to another would continue to receive notices in case of violation. Also, she or he would be held responsible in case the vehicle is involved in an accident.
