The owners are summoned to show relevant documentation. Failing to produce satisfactory documentation for the modification would lead to suspension of vehicle registration.

A pair of illegally modified Mahindra scorpio limousines have been seized by authorities of Vashi RTO in Maharashtra. According to the officials, altering the dimensions of the cars is a violation of Motor Vehicles Act.

The vehicles are registered in Gujarat and is reportedly owned by a limousine company based in Anand. The company charges INR 15,000 for 6 hours in Ahmadabad but depending on the hiring location, the rates can go up to INR 10,000 per hour.

In addition to the obvious extension of the wheelbase, the limousines feature reconstructed front fascia to mimic popular choices available in the US. One of the seized vehicles sports a Hummer inspired front fascia while the other is modeled around the Cadillac Escalade’s design.
