An FIR will be lodged the first time the driver is caught breaking the rule, The Times of India said in a report. Also, the driver's papers will be submitted to the regional transport office (RTO).
The RTO officials will then suspend the licence for 3-6 months.
If the same person is caught breaking the rule, the licence will be cancelled permanently, and the individual will be blacklisted.
"Earlier, driving licences could be cancelled if the offender was caught breaking rules for five times. But with the amended traffic laws, traffic police can recommend RTO to cancel the licence if the rule violator is caught in two offences," the report said, citing DCP Traffic (West) Sanjay Kharat.
