The transport ministry has decided to do away with the minimum educational qualification required to get a licence to drive heavy vehicles (buses and trucks). Drivers involved in 3.35 road lakh accidents out of 4.8 lakh in India in 2016 had educational qualification of Class VIII and above. “There is no data to establish that accidents are linked to uneducated drivers,” said a transport department official.
