Kolkata Police has decided to re-impose the “no helmet no petrol” rule forbidding petrol pumps from selling fuel to motorcyclists without helmets, a senior officer told.

The “no helmet no petrol” rule would start from December 8 and will continue for 60 days, the officer said.

“It has been observed that several instances of two wheeler riders riding without helmet as well as carrying pillion riders without helmet have been reported and occurrences of such infringement of rules have increased manifold”, Kolkata Police Commissioner Anuj Sharma said in the order issued on Friday.
