    The Motor Vehicles Act imposes the liability on every owner or person responsible for a motor vehicle to ensure
    that every person who drives the motor vehicle holds an effective driving license. Under the Motor Vehicles Act, the
    owner of the motor vehicle also bears the responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is registered in accordance with
    the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act and the certificate of registration of the vehicle has not been suspended or
    cancelled and the vehicle carries a registration mark displayed in the prescribed manner. No motor vehicle can be
    used as a transport vehicle unless the owner of the vehicle has obtained the required permit granted or countersigned
    by a Regional or State Transport Authority or any prescribed authority authorizing him the use of the vehicle in that
    place in the manner in which the vehicle is being used.
