Modi’s Crackdown On VIP Culture. Only Emergency Vehicles And These 5 People Can Use Red Beacons From May 1

Updated on 23 April, 2017 at 12:17 pm By

Modi’s government has made a big decision towards ending the red beacon culture of VIPs in India. Now no VIPs will be allowed to use red beacons on their vehicles.

The decision that affects a number of dignitaries, including ministers of Center and State, is likely to be implemented this May, and will only allow 5 VIPs, emergency vehicles and enforcement agencies to use the red beacon.

For VIPs, only people in 5 categories will be allowed to use the red beacon – the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India and the Lok Sabha Speaker. While the Prime Minister is allowed to use the red beacon, it is reported by India Today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will give up its use.

 

Road Transport and Highways Minister, Nitin Gadkari, informed the media of this landmark decision that gives a huge blow to the “Laal batti” culture of the country. The minister got the red beacon removed from his own car too and said that these have no relevance in a democratic country. A detailed notification in this regard will soon be issued by the government.

There have been reports that these beacons are easily available in car accessory shops and were being misused by people.



 

Punjab’s new Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh, prohibited the use of red beacons soon after coming into power, except for vehicles belonging to a few high dignitaries. Yogi Adityanath, Uttar Pradesh’s new Chief Minister also warned his ministers and bureaucrats against misusing the laal batti. The same was done by AAP government when they came to power in Delhi two years ago.
