Chandigarh (Punjab) | October 12, 2018 12:11:27 AM IST
The Central Government on Thursday issued a notification, exempting Sikh women from wearing helmets in Chandigarh.

The following decision came after Sikh bodies, led by Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Bal made a representation to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

The Home Ministry has advised the Chandigarh administration to follow the Centre's notification, giving an exemption to Sikh women from wearing protective headgear while driving two-wheelers in the city.

The Delhi government's transport department issued a notification on June 4, 1999, to carry out the amendment in Rule 115 of Delhi Motor Vehicle Act 1993, making it optional for women "whether riding on pillion or driving motorcycle to wear a protective headgear".

The rule was further amended through another notification dated August 28, 2014, whereby the word "women" was replaced by "Sikh women". (ANI)
