Unauthorized Use of Red/Blue Beacon Light

In India, the use of red and blue beacon lights on vehicles is regulated by the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and subsequent amendments. These lights are reserved for specific categories of government officials and emergency services, and their unauthorized use is prohibited by law.

As per the rules, only certain high-ranking government officials, such as the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Governors, Chief Ministers, and other dignitaries, are permitted to use red beacon lights on their vehicles. Blue beacon lights are reserved for emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire trucks, and police vehicles.
