A Guiding Agenda that Consumer Product Firms Need to Consider

Harish Sabharwal, chairman, UFTA, said, “Our main demand is that the exorbitant penalties under the amended MV Act should be reviewed. It is nothing but a source of corruption. While the government has increased the fines, it has not supported it with any infrastructure. Why do we still not have any scientific evidence of challans? Traffic inspectors still are not equipped with body-worn cameras or collar microphones. The government has assured that an ACP or SDM rank official will issue challans of higher value, but that did not happen.”

However, a few schools have decided to stay open today and asked parents to make required travel arrangements to drop kids today.

Whereas several parents are confused as there are reports stated that strikes involve road blockage.
“There are reports that the strike involves road blockage. So even if we make arrangements, we can never be sure about the condition of roads,” said Yatendra Kasana, president, All Noida School Parents Association.
