High speed on public roads, especially in India can be very dangerous. The government and the authorities decide the speed limit of any road after doing a proper design survey and not following the same can lead to consequences.

Most Indian roads are not designed to handle high-speed vehicles. While the Union Ministry is talking about increasing the speed of the expressways, the condition on most highways cannot sustain such high speeds yet.

Also, the road using habits where most people do not give way to others and try to cross the road in an unsafe way leads to many accidents. This is why reducing the speed is always recommended. At high speeds, the visibility becomes poorer and it also gives much less reaction time compared to the slower speed. If a stray animal or cattle starts to cross the road in front of the vehicle, the driver at a higher speed will get a much less reaction time compared to the driver that is driving at a slower speed.
