Not only the driver but also the person in front needs an airbag; Change from April 1st

New Delhi: Airbags will be mandatory for front seat passengers in new vehicles from April 1. As part of improving passenger safety, the airbag is mandatory for both the driver and the front passenger of the car. Currently, airbags are mandatory for drivers in all cars. Airbags have been mandatory for drivers since July 1, 2019.

In December last year, the government sought public opinion on a proposal to make airbags mandatory for front passengers in cars. The Union Ministry of Transport had also issued a draft notification in this regard. The proposal was approved by the Ministry of Law. In addition to the current airbag, vehicles must have a speed alert, reverse parking sensors and a seat belt alert. But life-saving airbags were not yet mandatory.

The current regulation that mandates a single airbag is inadequate. This is because a passenger in the front seat, like the driver, can be seriously injured or killed in an accident. With this in mind, the government has issued a notification mandating airbags for front passengers in all new model cars. The government has given car manufacturing companies until June 1, 2021 to implement the new law.
