  1. The transport authority which granted a permit may cancel the permit or may suspend it for such period as it thinks fit--

  1. On the breach of any condition specified in section 84 or of any condition contained in the permit, or

  2. If the holder of the permit uses or causes or allows a vehicle to be used in any manner not authorised by the permit, or

  1. The  transport authority may exercise the powers conferred on it under  sub-section (1)  in relation  to a  permit  granted  by  any authority or  person to  whom power  in this behalf has been delegated Under sub-section (5) of section 68 as if the said permit was a permit Granted by the transport authority.

  2. Where a transport authority cancels or suspends a permit, it shall give to the holder in writing its reasons for the action taken.
