The Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi was first to ban the use of Red beacons by ministers with Punjab following the same, now recently Uttar Pradesh government led by Yogi have also banned the use of Red beacons by ministers.

This step will ensure strengthening “healthy democratic values” in India. Nowadays you can see abuse of the res beacons to show power, sirens used by ministers is not legal and is just used by ministers to gain easy access.
