Purpose is to save the people’s life

Road and Transportation Minister, Nitin Gadkari said that the government doesn’t intend to increase the revenue by increasing the fine. The main purpose is to make the roads safer and reduce the number of road accidents.  He said that nobody will be fined if they are following the rules. He added that as Motor Vehicle Act falls in the concurrent list so the state and the centre both can revise and frame the rules.
