The Newly Amended Motor Vehicles Act Bill Will Change The Way India Drives This Winter!



Motor vehicles including, automobiles was first introduced in India at the end of 19th century. And to regulate their use 1914 Act was the first to be codified which had 18 sections under it. Later, Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 was introduced which regulated all aspects of road transport vehicles including both transport and non-transport vehicles. The Act provides details of legislative provisions regarding licensing of drivers/conductors, registration of motor vehicles, control of motor vehicles through permits, special provisions relating to state transport undertakings, traffic regulation, insurance, liability, offences and penalties, etc.

To exercise the above legislative provisions Government of India created Central Motor Vehicle Rules in 1989 and made sure that all the rules under the Act are enforced. With evolving times, government of India keeps updating these rules to provide on-road safety to the citizens of the country.

Now, in winter 2017 The Motor Vehicle Act (Amendment) Bill 2017 proposes imposition of hefty penalties on auto companies which manufacture faulty vehicles. The Bill also seeks statuary guidelines for cab aggregators and a 10% annual increase in penalties for traffic rule violations.

 The Lok Sabha had already passed the Bill in April this year, now it will go in Rajya Sabha. Bill   
would help meet the UN mandate to reduce road accidents up to 50% by 2020.

Other Details:
·        
• Aadhaar will be mandatory for getting a driving license and vehicle registration. 
• For deaths in hit-and-run cases, the government will provide a compensation of Rs 2lakh or more to    the victim's family. Currently, the amount is just Rs 25,000. 
• In traffic violations by juveniles, the guardians or owner of the vehicle would be held responsible        unless they prove the offence was committed without their knowledge or they tried to prevent it.     The registration of the motor vehicle in question will be cancelled and the juvenile will be tried       under the Juvenile Justice Act. 
•  Driving without a license will attract a minimum fine of Rs 5,000 as against Rs 500 at present 
•  The minimum fine for drunk driving has been increased from Rs 2,000 to Rs 10,000. 
•  The fine for rash driving has been increased from Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000. 
•  The fine for over-speeding will go up from Rs 400 to Rs 1,000-2,000. 
•  Not wearing seatbelt would attract a fine of Rs 1,000 as against Rs 100 at present. 
• Talking on a mobile phone while driving will attract a fine of Rs 5,000, up from Rs 1,000. 
• It will be mandatory to alter vehicles to make them suitable for especially abled people. 
• Motor Vehicle Accident Fund will provide compulsory insurance cover to all road users in India for    road accidents, fire as well as acid attacks. 
• Contractors, consultants and civic agencies will be accountable for faulty design, construction or        poor maintenance of roads leading to accidents. 
• A time limit of six months has been specified for an application of compensation to the Claims       Tribunal with regard to road accidents. 
• The Bill will remove the cap on liability for third-party insurance. The 2016 Bill had capped the       maximum liability at Rs 10lakh in case of death and Rs 5lakh in case of grievous injury. 

Government is playing its part for pollution free, safe and secure India, but laws alone cannot secure the country until every man present in the country follows them in an organized manner.
