The Delhi High Court on Monday stayed the Centre’s notification directing all states to take stern action against unauthorised fitting of crash guards or bull bars on vehicles.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar asked the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to examine the matter and directed that there would be no challans till April 18, the next date of hearing.
“Under what power have you issued this notification? Under what law have you issued advisory to the states to take penal action against the offenders? Till the next date, there would be a stay and no challans will be issued,” the bench said.
