Ernakulam: The High Court in Ernakulam has imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on the Fort Kochi Regional Transport Office (RTO). This fine was imposed because the RTO did not comply with a court order. Additionally, the action was taken because the RTO failed to provide requested information to the Advocate General’s office.
The High Court had previously issued an order requiring a decision to be made after considering an application for land reclassification. However, even after a year had passed since the issuance of this order, the RTO had not implemented it. As a consequence, the court imposed a fine on the RTO.
