Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016 Hike up to 10 Times


Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016 Hike up to 10 times. Road Safety in India is a major issue and reports recommending that consistently inside India more than 5 lakh road accidents happen, which results in more than 1.5 lakh individuals losing their lives. To put these truths into request, the Union Cabinet led by the Prime Minister has given its endorsement of Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016.

These revisions mean to decrease the road accident and fatalities by 50% in 5 years. The Government anticipates doing as such by forcing powerful punishments and fines on traffic offenders. Here are the real highlights of the Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016.

We trust these amendments are soon implemented and the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill in the Rajya Sabha passed by the cabinet. Read how it affects the automobile sector here.
