Proposal mandating six airbags in cars deferred to Oct 1, 2023

New Delhi: According to Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, the government has postponed the implementation of the proposal to make six airbags a requirement in passenger automobiles by one year, to October 1, 2023.

For improved occupant safety, the government had previously planned to mandate six airbags in eight-seater automobiles starting on October 1, 2022.

"Considering the global supply chain constraints being faced by the auto industry and its impact on the macroeconomic scenario, it has been decided to implement the proposal mandating a minimum of 6 Airbags in Passenger Cars (M-1 Category) w.e.f 01st October 2023," Gadkari said in a tweet.

The minister further asserted that the safety of all passengers travelling in motor vehicles irrespective of their cost and variants is the foremost priority.
