Validity of motor vehicle documents extended till September 30
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has advised enforcement authorities that the validity of fitness, permit (all types), licence, registration or any other concerned document(s) should be treated to be valid till September 30, 2021.
“This covers all documents whose validity has expired since Feb 1, 2020, or would expire by September 30, 2021. This will help out citizens in availing transport related services, while maintaining social distancing,” the ministry said.
The advisory requested all the states and union territories to implement the extension so that citizens, transporters and other organisations do not get harassed or face difficulties.
It had earlier issued advisories dated March 30, 2020, June 9, 2020, August 24, 2020, December 27, 2020 and March 26, 2021 in connection with extension of validity of documents related to the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989.
