With the improving infrastructure, the roads are getting better. So, recently our Transport Minister put forward a request to the ministry official to increase the speed limits. Following that, the speed limits may increase by up to 20kmph depending upon the category of the road.
In the request, Nitin Gadkari also added to make the speed limits constant. This means, the speed limits of different national highways may or may not be different. But after this application, the speed limits across the highways may become the same.
