It will now be mandatory for all the people sitting in the car to wear a seat belt. Failure to do so will result in a fine. Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari has made this announcement and the Transport Ministry will also issue a notification in the next 2-3 days. Let us tell you that the death of former Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry in a road accident has sparked a new debate on the need to put seat belts on the back seat of the car as well. After the death of Mistry, questions were also raised on road safety.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said the government is planning to make the rear seat belt alarm system mandatory for vehicle manufacturers. Currently, it is mandatory for all vehicle manufacturers to provide seat belt 'reminders' only for front seat passengers. Addressing an event on Tuesday, he said that after the death of former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry in a car accident in Palghar on Sunday, we have decided that vehicles should have seat belt alarm system for rear seats also. 

1000 fine for not wearing seat belt

!Under Rule 138(3) of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR), a fine of Rs 1,000 can be imposed for not wearing a seat belt in the back seat. However, most people are unaware that this rule is mandatory. Traffic policemen also do not impose fines for wearing seat belts of the passengers sitting in the back seat.
