The Pune Regional Transport Office (RTO) has banned the Porsche involved in a fatal crash on May 19 from the road until March 2025. In the accident, a 17-year-old minor drove the Porsche and fatally injured two techies from Madhya Pradesh on Kalyani Nagar Road, Pune.


The car was originally brought from Bangalore through a dealer. The temporary registration, valid from April to September, was done by the Bangalore RTO. However, the permanent registration process was delayed due to non-payment of the Rs 1,758 registration fee to the Pune RTO. With the new order, the car’s registration process is suspended for six months after September.


A show cause notice was issued to the Porsche’s owner, but no response was received. Consequently, the RTO cancelled the registration for one year. The Bangalore RTO has also been informed and will cancel the temporary registration. This update will be reflected on the Vahan Portal.


Regarding the minor driver, the Pune RTO is taking further action. Under Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) Section 199, they will propose to the Transport Commissioner, Mumbai, to bar the minor from obtaining a license until he turns 25. This proposal will be forwarded to the National Informatics Centre (NIC), which will update their system accordingly.
The report from a three-member team of Porsche experts, who inspected the car for technical malfunctions, has not yet been submitted. The RTO’s own inspection report is expected within the next few days.
