RTA cracks down on food delivery boys, terms use of personal bikes illegal

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, April 6:Leaving the livelihood of food delivery boys in jeopardy, the Road Transport Authority (RTA) has declared use of personal two-wheelers to deliver a range of goods and services, from shops, restaurants, pizza parlours to courier services, banks etc, as illegal. It asserted that using personal vehicles for commercial purposes is a violation of tax rules.
It must be noted that thousands of youths work in the city as delivery boys. They have a better chance of being recruited if they own and drive a two-wheeler.
According to a report published in, Hyderabad Joint Transport Commissioner J. Pandurang Naik said that using private vehicles for commercial purpose is against the rules.
Use of private vehicles for commercial purposes attracts a penalty of up to Rs 5,000 as per section 192 of the Central Motor Vehicle Act.
However, according to retired additional commissioner of transport and transport expert, C. L. N. Gandhi, it is not a violation of rules as the Act does not address two-wheeler goods vehicles.
