Does drink and drive conviction mean any jail time or a fine only? If it is jail time then it will have negative impact during background verification. If it is a mere fine then no effect

It was fine only,but would there be any problems for visa and in future because it comes under motor vehicle act and not ipc

Hi Vivek,

If it was a case registered against you & fine was paid as court order, then it is documented & the record will remain. If it was just a fine at street/station & just receipt was produced, then it will not have long term record for such background verifications.

The time frame would also be important. If the conviction was recent, then police may remember it & create an issue for the verification certificate (if applicable for type of visa).

Though, some countries have very strict verification checks for "resident visa"; For most of other countries & business visas / short visit visas, the process would be lenient.

On a little different track, .....It is unfortunate that educated people like us tend to ignore the basic rules of life (be it a law or not), until they affect at a life changing decision. All readers of this blog should take this example to understand, that even small mistakes can make you vulnerable at most crucial point of life; & hence we should all be vigilant to keep away from such "avoidable mistakes".

In case , case is registered for drunken driving , it remains. Apparently , there are no long-term effect in employment back-ground verifications for such cases but the perspective may vary from organisation to organisation.

It was fine only,but no receipt was given by the court,the authority said that it is a warning since bac level was not that high and fined 1500 .Few days before I asked the passport verification branch at police station and PI of crime branch,they said that offences under mv act are not screened in India.
