Former chairman of Tata Sons Cyrus Mistry died in a road accident near Palghar in Maharashtra. Initially, it is believed that speeding caused the accident due to loss of control.
At the time, Cyrus, who was sitting in the back seat, was not wearing a seat belt. Therefore, India is going to introduce the provision of fines in this case. The driver, the passenger sitting next to him and the passenger sitting in the back seat must fasten their seat belts. And if not, fine.
According to NDTV news, the rider will be fined if the seat belt is not fastened in the car. Not only in the front, but also in the case of the passenger sitting in the back seat of the car. There are such conditions as per the Central Motor Vehicle Act of the country. But its application is practically non-existent.
For this, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the existing law will be strictly enforced from now on. This was announced by the country’s government after the death of Cyrus Mistry.
Nitin Gadkari told NDTV that a fine of Rs 1,000 will be imposed if the rules are not followed. Cyrus Mistry’s last rites were performed in Mumbai on Tuesday. Cyrus died in a road accident last Sunday. His friend Jahangir Pandol also died in this incident.
