Transport department has made it compulsory for pillion riders to wear helmet. Though the notification was issued on Monday, there was no date about its implementation.
A senior officer of the Transport department said that this rule will be implemented when RTOs received circular about this rule.
People do not wear helmet. In such a situation rule of helmet for pillion riders seem to be a difficult proposition. Number of people penalized for not wearing helmet was 12 lakh last year.
It is interesting to note that recently Maharastra decided that helmet was must for fueling two wheelers at petrol pumps.
