The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday passed the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2019, to revise the provisions under the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988. The Bill had earlier been adopted by the Lok Sabha. The legislation was previously originated in 2017 but couldn’t pass the Rajya Sabha and ended with the dissolution of the 16th Lok Sabha. The 2019 Bill was tabled in the Rajya Sabha by the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari. The Bill strives to enforce stricter penalties for road traffic violations.
