Transport minister Nitin Gadkari defends new Motor Vehicles Act
1 of 7
Transport minister Nitin Gadkari has been responding to the harsh criticism over the steep fines for traffic violations under the new Motor Vehicles Act 2019. Last month, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways had notified the provisions of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, and they were implemented in several states from September 1. But they have not gone down well with most citizens. This is what the minister had to say in defence of its implementation.
