If this news is true then it is really a great move by ARAI. As the number of highways and the associated speeds of vehicles is increasing; it is extremely important to introduce measures for road safety.

I am not sure if ABS/EBD/Airbags/Traction control etc can also be directly related to the crash test but these would also form the nucleus of the future features that every vehicle ought to provide.

Also have a look at the following link

Tata Motors invests approximately up to 2 per cent of its annual turnover on research and development, with an emphasis on new product / aggregates development and technology upgradation. Its Engineering Research Centre in Pune employs over 1,400 scientists and engineers and has India's only certified crash-test facility and hemi-anechoic chamber for testing of noise and vibration.

So may be lets not curse all those indica(s) for a while

This will be one of the best rulings in recent times for our market. With the new Express Highways & Toll Roads coming up combined with the lack of driver training & education this is going to be a God send.

Let's hope our markets sees a real improvement with this & this rule is properly implemented.

superb. time for us to toast the death of the m800, the omni. these two vehicles should surely fail.

omni is just a coffin on wheels that maruti shamelessly keeps selling.

Let's hope that this will be a transparent affair. Don't want to find out ten years later that someone took XXXX crores of rupees for passing some XXX car.
next thing on their list should be mandatory passenger & driver side air bags.

It is a good ruling. This ruling should see at least some cars being removed from the market.

Just to make the process transparent, they should introduce an independent scientific body, like NCAP in Europe to test the crash worthiness of the cars, to rate them based on their crash worthiness and should publish both the results and the videos of the crash test. That should at least bring in some bit of transparency to the process.

I know it is an optimistic statement, but of what good is the crash test if no one knows the result of the test. Manufacturers should have something to brag about, right?
