The government has deferred the proposal to make 6 airbags mandatory in passenger cars (M1 category) by one year till October 1, 2023. Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari gave this information on Thursday. The government had earlier planned to make six airbags mandatory in eight-seater vehicles from October 1, 2022.

The auto industry is currently facing problems related to the global supply chain, keeping this in mind, it has been postponed. Gadkari started working on the plan to provide 6 airbags in the car from last year itself. Earlier, the ministry had made driver airbags mandatory from July 1, 2019, and front passenger airbags from January 1, 2022.

Currently, 2 airbags are available in the base variant of any car. It has one for the driver and the other for the front passenger.

The price of the car will increase by up to Rs 30,000
According to auto experts, adding 4 airbags for rear seat passengers can cost between Rs 8,000-9,000. The cost of an airbag is around Rs 1,800. At the same time, money will also be spent in making changes in the structure. The equipment and labor cost will also increase. In such a situation, the price of the car can be increased by about Rs 30,000 from all the expenses involved in 6 airbags in the entry level model.

How do airbags work?
The airbags open to protect the head and chest of the passenger in less than a second when hit by a vehicle from the front. This prevents the body from hitting the dashboard. Yes, the airbag must be fitted with a seat belt to give you complete protection. Airbags only hurt if seat belts are not fitted. There is also a possibility of injury to the face along with breaking of the neck bone.

Passenger safety is the most important
Gadkari said that the safety of all passengers traveling in motor vehicles is the most important priority. Earlier this month, Gadkari had directed e-commerce companies to stop selling a device designed to disable car seat belt alarms. Gadkari had said, his ministry is aiming to halve road accident-related deaths by the end of 2024.

Focus on making rear seat belt mandatory
Following the death of former Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry in a road accident, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) had issued a draft notification on making rear seat belt reminder mandatory. Public opinion has been sought on this draft notification till October 5. The draft is subject to change based on public comments.

This rule for N and M vehicles
According to the notification, the ministry has issued these draft rules for N and M vehicles. Category M means four wheelers in which passengers are carried. On the other hand, category N includes such motor vehicles, which have at least four wheels and can be used for carrying goods as well as carrying passengers.
