The Maharashtra government has already given an extension to domestic goods carriers and public transport buses till September 30 for the renewal of their documents, Minister of State for Home and Transport Satej Patil said on Saturday. He assured the transporters that there would be no harassment by police over non-renewal of the documents till the extended date.
Patil tweeted on Saturday, “The goods carrier transporters and public transport buses have been given an extension till September 30 for the renewal of their lapsed documents. Police personnel through their department heads have been directed to consider the extension given for the renewal while examining the documents. The police department will ensure that the examination of the documents does not lead to harassment of these transporters.”

The transporters had been demanding extension of the deadline as many could not get documents renewed due to the lockdown in various parts of the state. They had also alleged that traffic police personnel were harassing them as they didn’t have renewed documents.
