With an aim to minimize accident fatalities on Indian roads, the government has updated the 1998 Motor Vehicles Act to add an instant fine of up to Rs 2,000 for two-wheeler riders for not wearing helmets properly.

Fines of up to Rs 2,000 can be imposed under the following situations:

— If the rider is wearing a helmet but the buckle is untied. This will invite a fine of Rs 1,000

— If the helmet does not have a genuine BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification you may be charged with a ₹1,000 fine.
