Cuttack: Driving licence will not be allowed for any person below the age of 18 years here.
The decision was taken by the Traffic Management Committee of Cuttack city, transport department official said today.
Earlier persons below 18 years of age were issued licence to drive vehciles without gear having less than 55 cc engine capacity.
Since such vehicles are now not available in the market, children below 18 years would not be allowed to ride any vehicle,? the sources said.
Punitive action would be taken against those who err, he said adding campaigns would be launched by the department in all schools and colleges for sensitising students.
