The limits have been set under the Central Motor Vehicles Rules. The state governments are free to set limits within these overall limits for roads in their respective states.

I sincerely do hope they go one level deeper; especially on the last column "Other Roads".

A few examples I could think of (maybe this might sound ridiculous - but that's how un-detailed the Central Government directive is)
- Roads that pass by a school
- Roads that go through residential areas and societies
- Roads within public/private institutions (government institutions, railway stations, airports, colleges, etc)

However I sincerely welcome the directive to increase speeds on expressways and divided 4+ lane highways

Our roads have improved over the years. These speed limits looks reasonable and in line with international standards.

IMO; If anything, these limits are to be strictly enforced within the tolerance of 10%. 😊
