    Most important not shown above
    Clause 89. Insertion of new sections 215A (1) Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Act the Central Government shall have the power to delegate any power or functions that have been conferred upon it by the Act to any person or groups of persons and authorise such person or group of persons to discharge any of its powers, functions and duties under this Act.
    FINANCIAL MEMORANDUM
    4. The Bill does not involve any other expenditure of recurring or non-recurring nature
    from the Consolidated Fund of India. This mean the Union of India will not create any of its own machinery for discharging constitutional duty under article …….

    The Govt. will not incur any expenditure for public safety from motor vehicles though Central Govt. is collecting some Rs.75,000 Crores from motor vehicles in various taxes, excise etc.
    The loss to public from Motor Vehicle Accidents is Rs. 1.7 Lakh Crores annually as stated by member of National Road Safety Council at Kolkatta.
    This is going to add corruption from Street Constable to Ministry.
    Through this Bill the Central Govt. is acquiring power and then going to give the same to private persons without any accountability.

    This Bill has increased penalty on drivers by 10 times on assumption that accidents are caused by fault of drivers which is wrong. Accidents are caused by transfer of energy in such ways and amounts and at such rapid rates, that inanimate and structures are damaged.. These accidents are caused by High Speed vehicle ( Sporty Vehicles) and heavy DUMPERs manufactured and sold in violation of Law.

    Therefore section 109 of Motor Vehicle Act ( Since year 1939) reads ” Every Vehicle will be so constructed and so maintained so as to be at all times under the effective control of the person driving the vehicle.

    To control manufacturing of unsafe motor vehicles in violation of Law the Central Govt. has not created any of its own machinery under section 110 B but has delegated powers to private body of manufacturers like ARAI Pune.

    There is no penalty proposed on manufacturers for violation of Safety Rules under section 109 and 110 and vehicle certifying testing agencies. The only punishment for such testing agencies is cancellation of their accreditation for testing.

    There is requirement of National Driving Standards and Vehicle Standards Agency of United Kingdom or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of USA for certifying Prototype Vehicles and recalling vehicles.
    Though section 110 A is proposed for recall of vehicles but there is no financial memorandum that is no financial arrangement for creating such technical machinery. In Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in Transport Wing there is not even a single technically qualified person for dealing with safety of motor vehicles. All technical Automotive Industry Standards made for safeguarding interest of Industry are only adopted and notified by Govt.
    There is need for public debate by subject experts on this Bill and subject matter to reduce accidents.

    I am available for debate.
