Pedestrian safety features mandatory for cars from October 2018

- Global NCAP launches ‘Stop the Crash’ initiative

- Pedestrian safety initiative launched by Indian transport ministry

On the backdrop of the first Global NCAP World Congress to be held in Delhi, the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has announced that all new cars launched in India starting October 2018 will have to comply with the mandatory pedestrian safety features.

India is the largest contributor to the road accident fatalities across the world and the government is committed towards making Indian roads and motoring a safer deal altogether. The government has already set the ball in motion, making ABS and full-time running headlamps mandatory for two-wheelers. 

Global NCAP, an independent charity-focused organization that certifies crash-worthiness of cars, has, in partnership with Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE), has launched the ‘Stop the crash’ initiative as well. It focuses on technologies like autonomous braking systems amongst others.

The Indian government has already declared its intentions to have electronic stability programs and autonomous emergency braking mandatory by 2022 across all segments of vehicles with an aim to bring in road-safety at par with international standards just like in the case of emissions where the Indian market will jump to BS-VI from BS-IV.
