The Karnataka Government has further deferred the implementation of the mandatory helmet rule by a month. The date for implementation of the rule — that makes helmets compulsory for two-wheeler riders and pillion riders — is now October 1. Speaking to reporters, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said the decision came in the wake of the State Government’s decision to file a review petition in the High Court.

Kuaraswamy through the review petition, the Government proposed to clear the prevailing confusion among the public with regard to the rule — including the clause that makes helmets mandatory for pillion riders. Through the review petition, the Government will seek another month’s time before implementation of the rule, he added.
