Default ARAI @ Auto Expo 2020

What comes to mind when we hear the word ARAI? Most of us would assume that all that ARAI does is certify new vehicles and obviously is the custodian of ARAI certified mileage figures. Offroaders would vaguely remember ARAI from the CMVR rules discussions that were a rage when Thar was getting launched.

To be honest I also did not know what all ARAI does till I stumbled upon their stall at Auto Expo this year. Must say that they had a good stall for a semi-govt body (Compared to other govt-body stalls I saw).

Their stall was dominated by an electric bus that made use of aluminum as a super structure:

A poster explaining about ARAI and the services they provide

The specs of the bus, shown in opening picture above, were displayed alongside. Notice the aluminum used to make it lighter and thus savings in fuel costs
