The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988

80. Procedure in applying for and granting permits. 

  1.  An application for a permit of any kind may be made at any time.
  2. A Regional Transport Authority shall not ordinarily refuse to grant an application for permit of any kind made at any time under this Act:

Provided that  the Regional  Transport  Authority  may  summarily refuse the  application if  the grant of any permit in accordance with the application  would have  the effect  of increasing  the number  of stage carriages  as fixed  and specified  in  a  notification  in  the Official Gazette  under clause (a) of sub-section (3) of section 71 or of contract  carriages as fixed and specified in a notification in the Official Gazette under clause (a) of sub-section (3) of section 74:

Provided  further  that  where  a  Regional  Transport  Authority refuses an  application for  the grant  of a  permit of any kind under this Act,  it shall  give to  the applicant in writing its reasons for the refusal  of the  same and  an opportunity  of being  heard in  the matter.

  1. An  application to  vary the  conditions of any permit, other than a  temporary permit, by the inclusion of a new route or routes or a new area or  by altering  the route or routes or area covered by it, or in the case  of a stage carriage permit by increasing the number of trips above  the  specified  maximum  or  by  the  variation,  extension  or curtailment of the route or routes or the area specified in the permit shall be treated as an application for the grant of a new permit:

Provided  that   it  shall  not  be  necessary  so  to  treat  an application made  by the  holder of stage carriage permit who provides the only service on any route to increase the frequency of the service so provided without any increase in the number of vehicles:

Provided further that,--

  1. in  the case  of variation,  the termini  shall  not  be      altered and  the distance  covered by  the  variation  shall  not      exceed twenty-four kilometres;
  2. in  the case  of extension,  the  distance  covered  by      extension  shall  not  exceed  twenty-four  kilometers  from  the      termini, and  any such  variation or extension within such limits      shall be  made only  after the  transport authority  is satisfied      that such  variation will serve the convenience of the public and      that it is not expedient to grant a separate permit in respect of      the original route as so varied or extended or any part thereof.
  1. A Regional Transport Authority may, before such date as may be specified  by it  in this  behalf, replace any permit granted by it before the said date by a fresh permit conforming to the provisions of section 72 or section 74 or section 76 or section 79 as the case may be, and  the fresh  permit shall be valid for the same route or routes or the same area for which the replaced permit was valid:

Provided that  no condition  other than  a  condition  which  was already attached  to the  replaced permit  or which  could  have  been attached thereto  under the  law in force when that permit was granted shall be  attached to  the fresh  permit except  with the  consent  in writing of the holder of the permit.

  1. Notwithstanding  anything contained  in section  81 a permit issued under  the provisions  of sub-section  (4) shall  be  effective without renewal  for the  remainder of  the period  during  which  the replaced permit would have been so effective.
