Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari shared on Twitter that he has approved a draft GSR notification for the introduction of India-NCAP.

This will be a huge step towards making the cars sold in India safe and transparency in the safety of the cars being sold by the people. As part of the India-NCAP programme, the cars will undergo a series of tests and will be given ratings based on their performance.

This rating, apart from informing the public about the safety of a car, will also promote a healthy competition among automakers to make their cars safer for the Indian market. Additionally, according to Nitin Gadkari, this will also improve the export-worthiness of cars made in India.

The tests that will be a part of the India-NCAP testing will be in keeping with Indian regulations and will allow automakers to access a testing facility inside the country.

It remains to be seen how strict the India-NCAP tests will be in comparison to international crash test safety standards. However, the beginning of the formation of India’s own crash-test system is certainly a step in the right direction.
