208. Summary disposal of cases.

  1. The Court taking cognizance of any offence (other than an offence which the Central Government may by rules specify in this behalf) under this Act,--
  1. May, if the offence is an offence punishable with imprisonment under this Act; and
  2. Shall, in any other case, state upon the summons to be served on the accused person that he--
  1. May appear by pleader or in person; or
  2. may,  by a  specified date  prior to  the hearing of the charge, plead  guilty to  the charge  and remit  to the Court, by money order, such sum (not exceeding the maximum fine that may be imposed for  the offence)  as the Court may specify, and the plea of guilt indicated in the money order coupon itself:

Provided that the Court shall, in the case of any of the offences referred to  in sub-section  (2), state  upon  the  summons  that  the accused person,  if he  pleads guilty,  shall so  plead in  the manner specified in  clause (b)  and shall forward his driving licence to the Court with his letter containing such plea.

  1. Where the offence dealt with in accordance with sub-section (1) is an offence specified by the Central Government by rules for the purposes of this sub-section, the Court shall, if the accused person pleads guilty  to the  charge and  forward his  driving licence to the Court with the letter containing his plea, make an endorsement of such conviction on his driving licence.
  2. Where  an accused  person pleads  guilty and  remits the  sum specified and  has complied with the provisions of sub-section (1), or as the  case may  be, sub-sections (1) and (2), no further proceedings in respect  of the  offence shall be taken against him nor shall he be liable, notwithstanding  anything to  the contrary  contained in  this Act, to  be disqualified  for holding or obtaining a licence by reason of his having pleaded guilty.
