To facilitate the Memoranda of Understanding with neighbouring countries involving the movement of passenger or goods vehicles, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has invited suggestions and comments from all stakeholders on the proposed amendment in the Motor Vehicle Draft rules. A draft notification in this regard was issued by the Ministry yesterday.

The Ministry has been receiving requests from various Government Departments and States regarding supporting rules required under the provisions of Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, for the facilitation of Movement of Vehicles Carrying Goods and Passengers between the Indian States and other neighbouring countries from time to time.

The Ministry said, for facilitating the operation of MOUs, involving the movement of goods or passengers between India and neighbouring countries, it has been decided to establish standard guidelines rules.

The statement said the ministry has notified rules for the facilitation of bus service between Amritsar and Lahore(2006), between New Delhi and Lahore (2000), between Calcutta and Dhaka(2000) and Amritsar and Nankana Sahib (2006).

"All such regulations have been finalised to facilitate operations under MoUs which have been signed between India and other neighbouring countries. MoRTH had also notified rules on October 17, 2018, regarding Movement of Bangladesh registered LPG trucks in Indian Territory for the supply of bulk LPG to LPG Bottling Plant at Bishalgarh, Tripura," the statement said.

The Ministry said, the suggestion in this regard can be sent to the Joint Secretary (MVL), Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Transport Bhavan, New Delhi up to July 17, 2020.
