The report said the increase in speed limits has got a green signal from Minister Nitin Gadkari and notification in this regard will be issued soon. Further, to ensure that safety is not compromised, the ministry has approved the installation of devices like electronic control unit in vehicles that will ensure they do not ply at very high speeds.
