However, after widespread protests from truckers, the Centre has put on hold implementation of Section 106(2) of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita - specifically, the provision relating to 'causing death of a person by rash and negligent driving of a vehicle'.

These laws were passed by the Parliament on December 21, 2023 and received Presidential assent on December 25, 2023.
