Vehicles without third-party insurance to be seized

From now on, the vehicle, whose insurance does not cover the third-party liability, will be seized.

Transport Commissioner B Dayananda said that the regional transport office (RTO), along with traffic police, will enforce the rule to ensure that the insurance covers the accident victims.

"The enforcement is in line with the suggestions made by the Supreme Court-appointed committee on the road safety," he said.

The third-party insurance protects the victim of a road accident by allowing damage claims. While new vehicles come with third-party insurance, it is the renewed insurance policies that will come under the scrutiny.

The rule is already in force, and its enforcement will be more stronger in the days to come, the RTO officials said.
