After lifting the odd-even system for vehicles in the district, the Cachar District Administration has decided to re-impose the same restrictions on the movement of vehicles again.
In an order notified on 10th July, the Deputy Commissioner Ms. Keerthi Jalli, IAS stated that it has been seen that social distancing norms are not being adhered to by the public, and it has become extremely necessary to minimise the crowding caused due to the unrestricted movement of vehicles.
As such, the Deputy Commissioner has ordered that under sections 115 and 116 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, vehicles having an odd digit at the end of their registration numbers will be allowed to ply on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and vehicles having an even number as the last digit of their registration numbers will be allowed to ply on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the entire Cachar District.
However, certain classes of vehicles will be exempted from these restrictions. They include vehicles of judicial and government offices, medical, fire and police vehicles, buses plying under ASTC and vehicles under SMB and water resources, all goods carrying vehicles, vehicles of other districts passing through Cachar, vehicles of on duty employees engaged in COVID duty, media vehicles and other vehicles specifically permitted by the concerned authorities.
These restrictions will not be applicable on Sundays. Violations of these orders shall attract penal action in accordance with the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.
