As you can see, challan rates in Bangalore for the above-mentioned offences have been curtailed by as much as 80% by the Karnataka state government.

These curtailments come much needed, especially in the face of such dismal microeconomic as well as macroeconomic conditions in India.

However, while these rates have been brought to justice, the other rates mentioned in the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019 have been kept unchanged in Karnataka.
