They have issued a certificate of exemption thereby violating the rule itself.” Moreover, he submits that clause b of Rule 2(u) mandates that the speed of the vehicle should be less than 25km/h. Thus, to get exemption under the provision of the Motor Vehicle Act. In addition to that, he also submits that by granting exemption certificate have committed fraud to the Respondent No. 2 [The State of Karnataka] and general public, as evading registration charge to Respondent No. 2.

Petitioner’s Prayer

Thus, the petitioner prayed to the honourable court to issue a writ. An order or direction like mandamus. Directing the Respondent No. 3 to cancel or withdraw the certification of exemption issued to the vehicles, which violates Rule 2(u) of Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989. He also prayed for the issuance of circular to the general public, asking them to register their electric vehicle under MVA, which violates rule 2(u).

Court’s Decision

The High Court has issued notice to the authority and the concerned manufacturing companies, in the petition seeking withdrawal of all such wrongfully granted certifications.
