Thank you for pointing it out. so, one more take away is that we need to study both reports if the car is tested multiple times.

There is no doubt that the Govt is moving in the right direction. But then why there is no safety regulation for buses and trucks sold in India? Why they are exempted from an impact absorbing barrier/ crumple zone? If we observe, most of the time cars wont hold a chance of survival up on head on collision with a truck or bus. Most of the time the car would go under the truck, and the structure of the car is not able to protect its occupants. Its high time,buses and trucks are manufactured with impact absorbing barriers with specific height from ground in loaded condition.

They do have some safety regulations, but the PV segment is more acceptable for a change and also technologically a better proving ground in past. So it has become that the CV segment follows the PV segment. But yes, times have changed. we need to have a vision for safety in CV segment on par with PV segment.
