Mahua Moitra opposes the introduction of The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2019

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Sir, I rise to oppose the Amendments to the Motor vehicles Bill.

There are two very important clauses to the Bill that we seek to oppose. In Clause 5(c), you have increased the time limit of a license renewal from one month to one year after the expiry. This means that you will have people with expired driving licenses driving for one year after the license has expired. This is detrimental to road safety as well to the lives of others who are on the road.
