Warning to be given, but entry not denied till Wednesday
Starting Saturday, helmets will be made compulsory within the limits of Pune Cantonment Board (PCB). Proposed by the Local Military Authority (LMA), Pune Sub Area, the rule will be implemented by teams consisting of Corps of Military Police (CMP) personnel, Pune Traffic Police, Quick Response Teams (QRT) and girl cadets of the NCC.
To begin with, the authorities plan to monitor implementation of the rule from 10 am at three locations within PCB limits - junction opposite Ghorpadi Police Station, RSI-Circuit House junction and near Council Hall on the road towards Southern Command Headquarters. LMA authorities said for the first four days, the agencies will be carrying out the role of educating the masses and that entry into the cantonment will not be denied during this period. Strict implementation and denial of entry to bikers without helmets is likely to start by Wednesday. But entry will not be denied in case for emergencies.
Brigadier M S Jaswal, Deputy General Officer Commanding, (Dy GOC) Pune Sub-Area and President, PCB told The Indian Express, "The whole idea is to educate people. People must understand that helmet is being made compulsory for their own benefit and we personally have nothing to gain out of this." While urging civilians to wear helmets for their own safety, Army authorities have taken steps to ensure that their own persons strictly adhere to the rulebook. "Defence personnel without helmets will be dealt with under military law," Jaswal said.
There are 39 entry and exit points. The authorities have adopted an approach of appreciation as well as caution for bikers wearing/ not wearing helmets. On Friday, 50 NCC cadets distributed 2,000 roses to bikers who were seen wearing helmets. The group will continue to distribute roses over the next four days.
