Just stumbled upon this article where the safety features mentioned in the link shared by you are to implemented from July 2019. Looks like they missed the earlier deadline of October 2017. No surprises here though!

NEW DELHI: All cars manufactured after July 1, 2019, will have to be equipped with airbags, seat-belt reminders, alert systems for speeds beyond 80kmph, reverse parking alerts, as well as manual override over the central locking system for emergencies.
