As the state was yet to receive clarification from the union government over relaxation in the Motor Vehicles Act, no fines would be levied if a single child below 12 years travels on a motorcycle beside a pillion rider. The final decision would be taken after receiving a formal reply from the Union Government. Children above the age of four must wear helmets.

Further, an estimated 25,000 notices of fines would be issued every day. No exemptions in rules for VIPs other than those vehicles permitted by the union government.

Meanwhile, Raju slammed the Opposition parties in the state for levelling “unwanted allegations” against the ambitious project of the government. He challenged the opposition to prove corruption in the AI camera deal.
