Govt approves Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill; Things you need to know
New Delhi, June 27: Life will be tougher for those among us seeking thrill in as petty thing as breaking traffic rules. The Cabinet has approved the new Motor Vehicles Bill which is expected to pass in the ongoing monsoon session. The bill for the new act is likely to get presented in the Lok Sabha in the coming days.
The updated Motor Vehicles Act has been a long time coming and is expected to make our roads safer with stringent rules and hefty penalties in place for traffic violations.
The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill was first announced in 2016 and was pending for approval in the Rajya Sabha. However, the bill was never approved during the government's previous tenure and lapsed after the term of the 16th Lok Sabha came to an end. With the term change in place post elections this year, the MVA bill had to be represented in the current session.
So what changes with the amendments and how will it help us drive differently?
