The government has amended the Motor Vehicles Rules, 1988 on the recommendations of the Assembly Committee for the Welfare of Women, Children and Challenged to ensure safe travel of women.

Conductors and drivers of all stage carriers will have to carry Form CAWA to register complaints against harassments. The bus crew will have to get the form filled in by the victim and submit it to the nearest police station en route, an official release said on Friday.

All stage carriers will have to exhibit the number of Childline, helpline for women, telephone number of the Regional Transport Officer and the police and name of the owner, if it is a private stage carrier.
