The Delhi Police have issued a clarification that they were not imposing fines on drivers for not carrying condoms in their cars. This was after several drivers complained that they had been issued challans under the new Motor Vehicles Act for not carrying condoms in their first aid tool kit.

Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Taj Hasan, according to news agency ANI, said, “There is nothing mentioned in The Motor Vehicles Act about condoms. We are not issuing any challan to drivers for not having condoms in their first aid kits.”



One taxi driver had told ANI, “We’ve never asked reason but we get challans if found without condoms in first aid kits.”

Delhi Sarvodaya Driver Association president Kamaljeet Gill was quoted by India Today as saying, “All public vehicles are required to carry at least three condoms at all times.”

The Delhi Police have asked the cabbies to contact them if they are fined for not carrying condoms.
