BENGALURU: Continuing its crackdown on vehicles violating permits, the Transport Department on Tuesday booked 100 vehicles and seized 14, including a bus, carrying schoolchildren.  A special team inspected 275 vehicles in areas under the jurisdiction of the Electronics City RTO, according to a press release.

“We have also seized an unregistered bus plying schoolchildren,” said the release.

Private buses and maxi cabs were booked for plying without permits and other violations. Cars were booked for non-payment of taxes, for having tinted glasses, defective number plates and not carrying valid documents like emission test and insurance certificates.

Officials also said stringent action will be initiated against private vehicles ferrying students without adequate safety measures. They said private operators engaged in providing transport facility to the schoolchildren should follow the Karnataka Motor Vehicles Rules. “The seating capacity should not exceed 12+1. An approved speed governor with maximum speed of 40 kmph should be fitted. The vehicle should not be more than 15-years-old from the date of its initial registration,” a transport department official said.
