MoRTH proposes mandatory airbag for front passenger on all cars

Keeping the passenger safety as priority, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has proposed compulsory execution of airbags for the co-driver, or front passenger, on all cars in addition to steering-mounted driver airbags.

The MoRTH revised the standard necessities relevant to the M1 category of vehicles to include passenger airbags as a standard fit through a draft amendment uploaded on its website. The M1 category means a motor vehicle used for passenger cars, which includes no more than eight seats other than the driver’s seat.

From July 1, 2019, airbags are mandatory for the driver in all cars.
