Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, emphasised the need of seatbelt use while driving a four-wheel vehicle.
Gadkari added, "I have established legal arrangements in this regard," in reference to the terrible loss of industrialist Cyrus Mistry, who died in a car accident on Sunday near Mumbai.
When Mistry, the former chairman of Tata Sons, was involved in a collision with a divider in the Palghar region of Maharashtra on Sunday, he was not buckled up in the back seat.
Gadkari announced during a press conference that plans are being developed to include a seat belt alarm system for back seats that will function similarly to the driver's seat.
In response to Cyrus Mistry's passing, "Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has called me three times from London to launch a campaign," Gadkari stated.
"Even though it is required for passengers in the back seat of a vehicle to wear seatbelts, this rule is frequently broken..
Many cricketers, including Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan, have decided to lend their support to this free campaign "Gadkari uttered
