The traffic department of Nagpur Police fined almost 5.31 lakh motorists since January this year until October and collected fine of Rs 7.5 crore from them. As reported in TOI, in the month of October, the city traffic police charged penalties to over 2,874 traffic violators in a day, taking the tally to 86,244 violators in a month under the Motor Vehicles Act (MVA).
The sudden rise in increase of traffic violations soared post high courts revised instructions to help improve the traffic management across the city.
As per data provided by the traffic department, 43,168 motorists were found violating traffic rules, who were eventually made to pay Rs 69.71 lakh penalty charges in October.
TOI reported that before the nationwide lockdown was imposed, 49,405 violators were fined in February and 50,761 motorists were fined in the March. A total of Rs 7.24 lakh and Rs 70.17 lakh penalty charges were collected respectively in both the months.

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
