Modified car and bike enthusiasts in India often make changes to their vehicles to fulfill their hobbies. However, such modifications are illegal in India and can result in fines and jail time.

According to a Supreme Court meeting in 2019, no modifications can be made to a vehicle that are not specified by the manufacturer.

The Motor Vehicles Act 1988 also prohibits modifications that were not written in the vehicle’s registration documents.

Prohibited modifications include changes to the engine, exhaust, wheels, horn, tires, and silencer.

Violations of these rules can result in a fine of Rs 5000 and a jail term of 6 months for each modification.

Some modifications, such as installing a CNG kit, are allowed with prior approval from the Regional Transport Office (RTO).

Allowed modifications include changes to the fuel, color, rain visors, bumper corner protectors, tire size within manufacturer limits, and engine swapping with RTO approval.
