Default Restrictions on automotive radar tech may be lifted

Autocar mag reports that "the Minister of Transport is in favour of lifting the ban and this will open up options for a host of next-gen driver assists."

The Indian government may consider de-licensing the frequency spectrums necessary for radar-based automotive technologies. At the recently held Bloomberg TV-Autocar India Awards 2015, Eberhard Kern, MD and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India, spoke with Nitin Gadkari, the Union Government Minister of Transport, regarding de-licensing the spectrum commonly used by automotive short range radar systems (SSRS) in high-tech cars. SSRS are used for a host of advanced driver assists and help improve road safety.

I don't understand how it was automatically assumed that restrictions will be lifted? The minister simply said "“I will take up this issue personally, especially if it enhances road safety"

Reminds me of this post:

Thread closed until some concrete info emerges.
