Sunil Dhingra, Founder and CEO at Jazzmyride.com, said "Tax on helmets has gone from 12.5 per cent to 18 per cent. Even in some regions which were promoting safety like Rajasthan and Chennai had zero percent tax. Helmet is an essential safety gear. Even in a country like India where so many road accidents happen every minute, it is a huge dent on the safety part of it. Some special measures need to be taken so that riding gears on the safety front like LED lamps, helmets, riding gears for bikers are re-classified."
