But the state Govt is thinking of making this implementation more stricter from the new year.
The transport department is thinking in terms of making it mandatory for two-wheeler-riders to wear helmets while riding. The rule is proposed to be implemented from the first week of 2015. The department has sent a proposal to the government in this regard. In due course, it would be mandatory for pillion-riders also to wear helmet, according to the proposal. Come January, rule will come into force in all cities and rural areas as well which were earlier omitted from this rule.
