Road transport minister Nitin Gadkari said the central government is not looking to take away the rights of states and urged the House to pass the legislation.
The Bill has raised maximum penalty for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs from the existing Rs 2,000 to Rs 10,000.
Another provision proposed is to raise the time limit for renewal of driving licence from one month to one year before and after the expiry date.
