The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988

114. Power  to have vehicle weighed.

  1. Any person authorised in this behalf  by the  State Government may, if he has reason to believe that a  goods vehicle  or trailer  is being  used in  contravention of section 113,  require the  driver to  convey the vehicle to a weighing device, if  any, within a distance of ten kilometres from any point on the forward  route or  within a distance of twenty kilometres from the destination of the vehicle for weighment; and if on such weighment the  vehicle is  found to  contravene in  any  respect  the  provisions  of section 113  regarding weight, he may, by order in writing, direct the driver to off-load the excess weight at his own risk and not to remove the vehicle or trailer from that place until the laden weight has been reduced or  the vehicle  or trailer  has otherwise  been dealt with so that it  complies with section 113  and on receipt of such notice, the driver shall comply with such directions.
  2. Where  the person  authorised under sub-section (1) makes the said order  in writing,  he shall also endorse the relevant details of the overloading  on the  goods carriage  permit and  also intimate the fact of such endorsement to the authority which issued that permit.
