What We Think
We appreciate it when folks make clever and stylish adjustments to their vehicles. However, it’s vital to be aware that many alterations people make to their cars and bikes in our country aren’t allowed by the law. If the traffic police catch you with these modifications, they can give you a challan and ask you to reverse the changes. This is why we recommend that you first talk to your local RTO (Regional Transport Office). They can inform you about which changes are acceptable and which ones go against the law. If you still want to proceed with those changes, you can officially update your vehicle’s registration documents with the RTO. By doing this, you won’t need to worry about getting fined.
