Free Helmet in Rajasthan: The government has taken this decision to reduce the number of road accidents and deaths in them. Transport Minister Khachariwas said, ‘The state government is committed to road safety. Reducing the number of injured and dead is a priority.
Every year about 1.5 lakh people die in road accidents in the country.
In India, 4.5 lakh people are victims of accidents every year.
In case of accident, India ahead of US and China
Now, on buying a two-wheeler (two wheelar) in Rajasthan, a helmet will be available for free. The state government’s transport minister has approved a proposal in this regard. In a statement issued by the government, it has been said that Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas has given instructions to all the vehicle dealers in the state to issue instructions in this regard.
Reason for decision
The government has taken this decision to reduce the number of road accidents and deaths in them. Transport Minister Khachariwas said that the state government is committed to road safety. Reducing the number of injured, injured and dead is the top priority of the department. It is often seen that many people buy cheap and improvised helmets to avoid shortage of money or invoices. At the same time, there are many people who ignore the need for strong government recognized helmets and prefer ordinary helmets and this negligence often proves fatal.
Figures are frightening
Every year in the country, about 1.5 lakh people are killed in road accident, while about 4.5 lakh people are victims of road accident. The government is very concerned about the number of people who died in road accidents. That is, in the case of road accidents, India is ahead of the US (US) and China (China). Road Transport & Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari has asked all stake holders to take steps to reduce the number of people killed in road accidents.
At the same time, a target of 50 percent reduction in deaths due to road accidents by 2025 has been set. He said that due to deaths due to road accidents, a dangerous situation is being created and India is ahead of the US (US) and China (China) in the first place in the case of road accidents.
The case has reached court
To ensure the quality of helmets in India, manufacturers are required to meet the standards of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Despite this, large-scale helmets are manufactured indiscriminately in the country. In India, the quality of helmet has reached the courts of the country amid the appalling situation of road accident in India. In this connection, the Delhi High Court recently directed the BIS to closely monitor the manufacture and sale of helmets.
