Hello,

There is no mention of any restriction of roof carrier in CMVA (Central Motor Vehicle act)
However - some states have over riders which can super cede by State Motor vehicle act

Some time back - heard of that Roof carriers are not allowed in Gujarat - if its a private registered car, however - no exact details updated with us or the fine if the same installed

Unsure for Maharashtra / Gujarat - best way to know is by pinging in on social media pages of Traffic police of respective states - if any such ban is there or may connect with any car dealer showroom in these locations especially the accessory person to know - if luggage carrier is allowed for fitment on private cars and are there any restriction rules for same.

Hope should help !!

@ Basant

To the best of our info - if vehicle has private registration - then there are no restrictions as such on fitment of roof carrier
Still - Suggest to re-check on same with Maruti Dealer before fitment.

I was stopped last night 7 Jul 18, at Delhi T3 airport by the police for having a luggage carrier on my car. He said it was ill legal in Delhi. I have not been able to find any rule regarding this.

I was stopped yesterday at barakhamba road in Central Delhi for a Luggage rack on my private car. We need it to carry my mother's wheelchair. After much pleading, I was let go, but was told to her it removed.
Online, I cannot find any restrictions apart from a general statement in thr Act that any modifications are not permitted (and specifically there seems to be a lot of content on bull bars - it's ban by SC and it's stay by Delhi HC till august) but none about Luggage rack.

Any info will be helpful. Thanks in advance

Dear sir,
I had maruti Omni private 8 seattre passing at Gujarat.
I had seen so many peoples are having a problems of roof lauggage and inside keeping lauggage. Your answers regarding same are not clear. I didn't found a clear picture of the same from police, dealers or RTO law.
I am requesting you to make a reliable study and report for... Lauggage ( which type of ), carrier, personal lauggage like Traveling needs... Extra lights...
Thanks

Gagan Ji,
Since lot of people who have been challaned(including myself) for having a luggage carrier installed on their private cars, are reaching out to you. you are in the best position to seek clarification from Ministry of Transport to get a formal response on this.

A letter from MoT stating "it is legal to have luggage carriers installed on private cars" will be valid across India, across all states.
I sincerely request mycarhelpline to lead this initiative and publish the results in your YouTube videos.

it would be a great help to all of us.

Thanks & Best Regards
V Jain
