Centre changes rules for drivers licence, Aadhaar updates, LPG pricing starting June 1

New Delhi/IBNS: Starting June 1, the Centre will be introducing a host of new rules pertaining to driving license, LPG cylinder usage, bank holidays and Aadhaar updates.

New Driving License Rules

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways recently announced new regulations for obtaining a driving license in India.

Starting June 1, 2024, individuals would be able to take driving tests at private driving training centres instead of government RTOs.

These centres will be authorized to conduct tests and issue certifications for license eligibility.

The new rules also aim to reduce pollution by phasing out approximately 900,000 old government vehicles and enforcing stricter car emission regulations.

The fine for speeding remains between Rs 1,000 and Rs. 2,000. However, if a minor is caught driving, they will face a substantial fine of Rs. 25,000. Additionally, the vehicle owner's registration card will be cancelled, and the minor will be ineligible for a license until they are 25 years old.

Aadhaar Card Update

Online Aadhaar Card updating options will be available till June 14. However, if users choose to do it offline, then an additional payment of Rs. 50 per update will be charged.

LPG cylinder price

LPG cylinder prices are adjusted on the first of every month and on June 1, oil companies will set new gas cylinder prices.

In May, these companies reduced the prices of commercial cylinders, and it is anticipated that they may lower cylinder prices again in June.

Additionally, as with every day, changes in petrol and diesel prices are expected on June 1.

Bank Holidays in June

According to the list of bank holidays issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banks will be closed for 10 days in June. These include Sundays and the second and fourth Saturdays.

Additionally, other holidays in June include Raja Sankranti and Eid-ul-Adha.
