"The government is not going to promote any technology or policy that will make people jobless", he said. While putting his statement in the matter of launching driverless cars in the country, Nitin Gadkari said, "No self-driving cars will be legalised for Indian roads".

Autonomous driving needs infrastructural supportWhile the government may be mulling disallowing autonomous driving technology, it remains to be seen if driverless cars can run in India in the near future. This is apparently why over in India, union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari will not allow driverless cars.

In addition, Nitin Gadkari mentioned that global electric auto manufacturers have been clearly informed that they won't be getting any relief on import duties, meaning if brought through the CBU route, it will prove to be an expensive option.

Gadkari has said that "we won't allow any technology that takes away jobs".

In recent years, new technology has mostly created jobs for drivers.

A number of countries have been testing out driverless vehicles, with Australia being among them. The government will only be a facilitator in this but the platform will bring in more competition and help commuters to pick between affordable public transportation choices.

Gadkari claimed, "Five lakh people will get jobs over the next five years". "In order to promote innovation and research and development in the fields of vehicular engineering, mechanically propelled vehicles and transportation in general, the central government may exempt certain types of mechanically propelled vehicles from the application of the provisions of this Act", reads a clause. You have to have the right balance.

However, Automotive leader, Price Waterhouse & Co. said, "India is not immune to the debate". Most manufacturers like Renault and Google (also working on driverless tech) have ruled out these cars running on our roads anytime soon.
