Delhi revises speed limits with immediate effect: All you need to know
Delhi Traffic Police on June 11 revised the speed limits for different categories of vehicles. The new speed limits will be implemented immediately according to an official notification by the deputy commissioner of Delhi Police (Traffic).
“Delhi Traffic Police has revised the maximum speed limit all over Delhi for different categories of Motor Vehicles plying on Delhi Roads,” tweeted the traffic police of the national capital.

Meenu Choudhary, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) told news agency ANI that the speed limit was revised under four classifications. “For M1 category vehicles (comprising not more than eight seats in addition to the driver's seat), the maximum speed limit is 60-70 kmph. The speed limit for cabs/taxis has been fixed at par with cars,” said Choudhary.
"At places where the speed limit for cars is 50 kmph, it will be same for two-wheelers as well but where the cars’ speed limit is 70kmph, two-wheelers’ limit will be 60kmph," the Joint CP (Traffic) added.
For the M2 category vehicles (comprising nine or more seats in addition to the driver's seat), the speed limit has been restricted to 50-60 kmph on most roads.
Here are the Various Classifications
  • Cabs: Cars, jeeps, app-based cabs from Uber, Ola, and others can operate at a maximum speed of 50-70 kmph. However, the speed limit should be restricted to 30 kmph inside commercial markets, small roads, and residential areas.
  • Two-wheelers: Motorbikes and scooters can run at a maximum speed of 50-60 kmph on highways and flyovers but will have to reduce their speed to 30 kmph in a residential complex, on service roads, and in commercial markets.
  • Transport vehicles: Such vehicles, including Gramin Sewa, TSRs, Phat-Phat Sewa, and quadricycles can run at a uniform speed of 40 kmph.
  • If a rider or driver is found to violate the above speed restrictions by over 5 percent of the fixed maximum limit, the Delhi Police shall take cognisance of the offence under Section 183 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.
