    I think blue is set to be reserved only for emergency vehicles like ambulance, fire services etc. ( as per arun jaitley statement)

  • All beacons banned. No babus can sport them now. Great move!

    People whose stated purpose for giving CSE was "batti wali gaadi" will now have to shift focus to Ambulance Driver Entrance Exam.

    Having said that, I still believe that 'the more things change, the more they remain the same'.

    Operational police vehicles can use blue now. But not SP sahib's car. Also, the change kicks in on May 1, and there are no exceptions because they are deleting the very rule that empowered states and the centre to have battis. Bravo!

  • only senior bureaucrats in states and judges would be affected by this decision. even a small time minister moves with a cavalcade of atleast 10 suv's rendering the necessity of beacons irrelevant. many bureaucrats in central government were already not using beacons. but as far as ending vip culture is concerned, this step does not address even an iota of the problem.

    I have seen SDMs, DMs, SSPs use it with pride. It is great that their vehicles will now be stripped.

  • I was staying at Gujarat Bhavan before the interview, and Union Revenue Secretary, Shri Hasmukh Adhia had come to guide us about the interview, and explain GST to us in simple terms. We were expecting a lal batti waali car and a couple of others in tow, but he had come by a plain radio taxi. We were surprised, and impressed. :)

  • Does ANYONE realize the real issue here. What was the problem with beacons? Does it really cause mayhem if IAS/IPS officers or any dignitaries use a beacon? As far as I can see, that was never the problem.
    The real problem lies in the blatant MISUSE of the beacons - by the so called elected leaders (bahubalis, dacoits and their chelas etc) or every other chutbhayia wanna be neta or the wide extended families of the 'so and so' (as claimed by anybody and everybody who places a beacon and siren on just about any type of vehicle).
    So, what really was the problem here? I DONT see the beacons as the problem. And SADLY, the government, by passing this rule has given a message that the government CANNOT control the hooligans and their gundas and chutbhayia netas and their chelas and the cavalcades, therefore, the government will do something that SOUNDS NICE but is really of no value and not a solution at all.

    Modi or the President etc, don't really need a beacon, do they? They have official cavalcades, they move only on the streets that have been emptied/cleared of the 'masses' by the Law Enforcement for VIP movement. Has anyone ever seen the PM or the Presidents car stop at a traffic light? Apparently only Indian leaders (apparently all of them from chutbhayia netas to bade netas and all their extended families) are threatened by such inconveniences and the traffic laws dont apply to them (yes, due to security reasons) however the Queen of Britain and many other countries' top leaders do not have enough of threat perception.

    How is this going to solve any problem? Since the government cant control every Tom, Dick, and Harry from using the beacon, and since they are so concerned and have such high moral ethical values, they have decided to BAN the BEACON. Wonderful.

    And to top it all, if this comes in the exam, the only option you have - is to praise the great move of the government!!!

    Naa..police at junior level like dysp,sp and ssp will still use it in name of duty.Police has been exempted and crpc says work of junior police officer can also be taken over by senior officer...
    It will differentiate IPS from IAS like khaki vardi.competition for IPS will increase more

    Trust me only operational police vehicles will use it , the IAS lobby won't have it otherwise.
