Govt to step up policy for 6 mandatory airbags in passenger vehicles

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways will now move quickly to implement a policy requiring all passenger vehicles to have six airbags installed.

According to government sources, installing four additional airbags will cost between Rs 9,000 and Rs 10,000.

Each airbag costs between Rs 1,800 and Rs 2,000, with vehicle modifications costing between Rs 1,000 and Rs 2,000.

According to the media, modifying the vehicle to accommodate four additional airbags could be difficult.

According to the new rules, which took effect on January 1, all vehicles manufactured in India must have two airbags installed for front-row co-passengers.

According to a recent World Bank report, India accounts for nearly 10% of all road crash fatalities worldwide.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a federal agency in the United States of America, a combination of airbags and seat belts reduces the risk of death in frontal crashes by 61%, with airbags alone reducing fatalities by 34%.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is a federal agency that is part of the Department of Transportation in the United States. Its mission statement about transportation safety in the United States is to Save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce vehicle-related crashes.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is the apex body for the formulation and administration of rules, regulations, and laws relating to road transport, as well as transportation research and increasing the mobility and efficiency of India's road transportation system.
