    Under section 194C of Motor Vehicle Act 2019, if you are riding a two-wheeler along with two other people, this is called overloading of two-wheelers, and the fine for this is Rs 2000. Along with this, your license will be disqualified for three months.

Not only this, but situations like drunken driving, dangerous driving, speeding, and racing the vehicles would also be penalized with heftier fines.
