Concerns have often been raised about the safety of passengers in vehicles sold in the Indian market. The government has taken several steps to address these concerns. Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari in a tweet on Friday said that he has approved the draft GSR notification to make minimum six airbags mandatory for motor vehicles carrying eight people.

“This will ultimately ensure the safety of passengers across all segments, irrespective of the price/variant of the vehicle,” Gadkari said.

The ministry has already made it mandatory to implement the fitment of driver airbags from 1st July 2019 and front co-passenger airbags from 1st January this year.

In the M1 vehicle category, it has been decided that four additional airbags are mandatory to reduce the impact of front and rear collisions for both front and rear compartments.

This will include two side/side torso airbags and two side curtain/tube airbags that will cover all the passengers of the car. He said that this is an important step in making motor vehicles in India safer than ever before.

death in road accidents

India is one of the top countries with an alarmingly large number of road accidents registered every year. A large number of deaths and serious injuries occur in these road accidents. Whereas traffic violations are attributed as the major reasons behind the accidents. But inadequate safety measures, especially in small entry-level vehicles, are also the cause of a large number of deaths.
