Out of the Rs 6.53 lakh, the truck owner was fined Rs 6,40,500 for not paying road tax for five years -- from July 21, 2014 to September 30, 2019 -- under Odisha Motor Vehicles Taxation (OMVT) Act.

The RTO also levied fine -- for not carrying documents, including vehicle insurance, violating air and noise pollution, carrying passengers on the goods vehicle and violating permit conditions, sources added.

As per the Challan copy, besides the road tax penalty, the RTO has fined the truck owner Rs 100 for general offence, Rs 500 for disobedience of orders/obstruction, Rs 1,000 for violating air and noise pollution, and Rs 5,000 for carrying passengers in goods vehicle.
