In reply to a separate question, Gadkari said that states including Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh have confirmed that they are following the provision of the Motor Vehicle Act as well are adhering to the notification issued thereunder to ensure the appropriate electronic enforcement devices on National Highways at high risk and high-density corridors. However, the remaining states and UTs have not yet confirmed this.

In August last year, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways issued a notification for electronic monitoring and enforcement of road safety, which requires state governments to ensure that appropriate electronic enforcement devices are placed at high risk and high-density corridors on National Highways.
