Tyre industry welcomes draft norms by MoRTH

The tyre sector in India has welcomed draft norms that involve the new requirement for rolling resistance, rolling sound emission, and wet grips, established by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH).

The Automotive Tyre Manufacturers Association (ATMA) stated that these norms are an initiative towards the right path that will assist in improving road safety and increase the fuel efficiency of vehicles.

These new norms will fuse as a part of the Automotive Industry Standards (AIS 142). The tyre industry has actively collaborated with the government on the AIS 142 that explains the norms for tyres, said Rajiv Budhraja, Director-General, ATMA.

Although, the timeline for the adoption of newly formed norms will need a feasible revision to permit the tyre industry to test the huge number of SKUs and also to land on a practical threshold limit that matches the conditions in India. The tyre industry of India manufactures an extensive range of tyres in the world, ATMA said.

As per ATMA, the test tracks established by the government should be made entirely operational for testing all varieties of tyres as anticipated in the draft. It also needs a revision of the timelines.

According to the norms in the draft, the suggested standards will become active from October 1, 2021, for all varieties of tyres across the three-vehicle segments for passenger cars. LCV and HCV before October 1, 2022.

ATMA, along with the Indian Tyre Technical Advisory Committee (ITTAC), is assembling a response on the draft notification to the ministry for smooth implementation of the new norms without disrupting the product lines of its members.
