He said the purpose of the seminar was to sensitise all the stake holders about the issue and to arrive at certain conclusions with regard to making the speed governors tamper proof.

Presentations were made by ICAT general manager U K Bhatt, Arvind Kumar, R&D Head of Rosemarta Autotech Pvt Ltd, S K Ruhil, JSTC (Technical) covering various issues.

A two member committee, including U K Bhatt and S K Ruhil was constituted with representatives of speed governor manufacturers to make recommendations for making improvements in the existing Standard AIS:018 in order to make it more tamper proof.
