Bangalore, Sep 16(UNI) Karnataka High Court has ordered the State Government to register transport vehicles only after fitment of Speed Governors as prescribed in its notifications issued earlier.
A release here today said Karnataka Commissioner for Transport, Bhaskar Rao had stated that with the High Court order it is mandatory for all the transport vehicles to be fitted with Speed Governor in this month.
Mr Rao said stern action would be taken against erring vehicle owners.
