Subject: Revision of Safe Axle Weights for Transport Vehicles and enforcement

Sir,

thereof.

The permissible safe axle weights of goods vehicles were last notified in the year 1983. Over the years, significant improvements have taken place in tyre technology, vehicle design, pavement design etc. The global axle weight norms are higher as compared to the existing Indian norms. The lower axle weight has often been cited as one of the major factors responsible for high logistics cost in India and incidence of overloading. The issue of revision of axle weight was also raised in the Meeting of the Group of Transport Ministers of the States, who recommended to increase the permissible axle weight of transport vehicles.

2. The issue has been examined in the Ministry and the revised maximum safe permissible axle

weight for Transport vehicles have been notified by the Ministry vide S.O. 3467E on 16th July, 2018. A copy of the notification is enclosed at Annexure 'A'. This notification supersedes the earlier notification dated S.O. 728(E) dated 18th October, 1996.

3. The above notification specifies the maximum permissible weight for different configurations of the

axles. In order to clarify its impact on the gross vehicle weight (GVW) on vehicles with different axle combinations, an illustrative table has been prepared as a guideline for enforcement agencies. This is enclosed as Annexure '8' for ready reference. It may be noted that any combination of axles in trucks, tractors and trailers would be permissible subject to overall GVW limits and approval process as per CMVR. No separate notification would be required for individual axle combination.

4. It may further be noted that the modular hydraulic trailers may be permitted to carry single

indivisible loads of higher values (in terms of dimensions and weight) provided appropriate number of axle row modules are provided and route permissions are taken from the authorities having jurisdiction over area

of movement.

5. With the revised permissible weight for the transport vehicles, the state enforcement Authorities

are requested to rigorously enforce the regulations and take strict action against overloading by goods vehicles on roads and ensure that such vehicles are stopped and made to unload the excess load before being allowed to proceed further, in addition to levy of penalties under section 194 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.
