New Delhi: The new road safety bill may slap Rs 100 Cr fine on auto manufacturers who fail to integrate necessary safety measures in their vehicles. A ministerial panel set up by the centre to recommend measures to enhance road safety, also recommends Rs 5000 fine on those who use unauthorized components in vehicles.

The government also proposed to set up a Security Vetting Authority to carry out security vetting of the Geospatial Information of India in a time bound manner and as per the regulations framed by an apex committee.

“Any person who wants to acquire, disseminate, publish or distribute any geospatial information of India, may make an application alongwith requisite fees to the Authority for security vetting of such geospatial information and licence thereof to acquire, disseminate, publish or distribute such Geospatial Information in any electronic or physical form,” the draft bill says.
