Default Re: What are the minimum requirements for the RTO to deem a car Road-Legal?

I think it has something to do with ability to pass the ARAI crash test at 56 kmph. If your contraption can pass the test, then you can sell it as a "car". The only reason why Bajaj Qute cannot be sold as a car is because it does not pass the 56 kmph ARAI crash test.

Also, I'm pretty sure a car needs to pass stricter emission regulations as compared to commercial vehicles.
