    Kolkata, Sep 12: The Calcutta High Court partially stayed a West Bengal Transport Department notification banning sale of motorcycles to those who do not have a driving licence.

    A consortium of motorcycle manufacturers challenged the state transport department's notification that provided guidelines on sale of two-wheelers to people claiming that it was impractical since a section of people who are owners of motorcycles do not drive these themselves.

    They also claimed that the ban through the notification on June 28 would hamper the sales of two-wheelers in the state.

    Passing the order, Justice Tandon observed that for ensuring road safety, many other stricter steps can be taken using modern technology.
