Today we will discuss the next two bills. Below mentioned is the explanation of the the next two topics i.e Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, Whistleblowers Amendment Bill.

Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill

The Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016 was passed in the Lok Sabha on Monday, which will bring in heavier fines for traffic rules violation, improve licensing system, protect the good samaritans and check bogus vehicle theft cases.

Objectives

  • The bill seeks to save lives by ushering in radical reforms in the motor vehicles law to slap heavy penalty on traffic violators, protecting good samaritans and making vehicle-makers responsible for design defects to cut road accidents.
  • The basic aim of the bill is “to save human lives”,as a whopping five lakh accidents take place every year claiming around 1.5 lakh lives across the country.

Salient Features

  • It links driving licence and vehicle registration with Aadhaar-based platform. The move comes in the wake of de-duplication of licenses and registration of stolen vehicles.
  • The Bill amends the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 to address issues such as third party insurance, regulation of taxi aggregators, and road safety.
  • Under the Act, the liability of the third party insurer for motor vehicle accidents is unlimited. The Bill caps the maximum liability for third party insurance in case of a motor accident at Rs 10 lakh in case of death and at five lakh rupees in case of grievous injury.
  • The Bill provides for a Motor Vehicle Accident Fund which would provide compulsory insurance cover to all road users in India for certain types of accidents.
  • The Bill defines taxi aggregators, guidelines for which will be determined by the central government. The Bill also provides for:

(i) amending the existing categories of driver licensing,

(ii) recall of vehicles in case of defects,

(iii) protection of good samaritans from any civil or criminal action, and

(iv) increase of penalties for several offences under the 1988 Act.
