If you are living in India then there is no need to tell you the importance of Lal Batti on the vehicles owned by VIPs. It actually indicates that the person in the car belongs to a superlative position which includes politicians, IAS, IPS and others. However, our current Prime Minister has changed the norms just now and ends this VIP culture in India.
Yes, he banned the Lal Batti on the VIP cars. Now the Lal Batti will be allowed to use by only five constitutional posts, namely the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India and the Speaker of Lok Sabha from May 1.
And rest of the VIPs including union and state ministers, judges, bureaucrats who use red beacons on their cars will have to remove them. It is a good move by the BJP government towards the culmination of VIP culture in India. According to the news, the Supreme Court had also directed the government to stop the rampant misuse of red beacon earlier in 2013.
