I live in Uttam Nagar New Delhi
My maids husband had a challan of his scooter as he was driving without a Helmet, Had no driving license.
The traffic police constable has taken away my maids scooter original RC.
In addition when I checked the challan online I see that there are the following sections under which the challan has to be paid
Challan in the Name of My maid's Husband
1: Driving without License (3/181 MVA) [Fine - 0]
2: Driving without Helmet (Rider / Pillion Rider) (194D MVA) [Fine - 0]
As the scooter is in my maid's name the second challan is on her under
1: Allowing Unauthorised Person To Drive (5/180 MVA) [Fine - 0]
The challan is not showing any amount but I have found online that the total challan payable under the following sections is around Rs. 11000.
My maid is very poor and cannot afford this type of money. As she has just started working in my house I am a bit sceptical to lend her that money as it would take her a year to repay it back and I am not very sure if she will last that long as help as she is already planning to move back to her native Bihar after this incident.
She is scared to go to court as she feels that if she is unable to pay the challan and she may go to jail.
What is the solution to this. I read about community service as an option. How can it be done.
Is there no relaxation of challan fine for such poor people.
Please let me know
