In my opinion since it is a petty offence, this may not reflect in the passport issues. 2.I want to contest in elections in future if a pay penalty what happens i will be eligible for elections or not ? these are my questions please make me understand sir please. There is no problem in contesting an election even if you have paid fine on this petty offence.
