New Delhi. Driving the car from the first date of April will be safer than before. Now it will be compulsory to provide airbags in every vehicle along with the driver as well as on the co-passenger side. The Road and Transport Ministry had sent a proposal to the Law Ministry regarding this which has been approved. This rule will be implemented from 1 April 2021. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in the statement, a gazette notification has been issued regarding mandatory airbags for passengers sitting in front of the driver’s seat in vehicles. This is an important security measure. This was suggested by the Supreme Court’s Committee on Road Safety.
Now two front airbags will be mandatory
Now it will be necessary to provide airbags not only for the drivers of the cars but also for the passengers sitting with them. The Law Ministry has accepted the proposal of the Ministry of Roads and Transport, a notification for this will be issued in the next three working days. Cars built on or after 1 April 2021 will require two front airbags. The Road and Transport Ministry had sent a proposal to the Law Ministry regarding this which has been approved.
August 31 Deadline for Existing Models
The new rules for the models of existing cars will come into effect from 31 August 2021. The first proposed deadline was June 2021, which has now been extended. In December last year, the government sought responses and suggestions from people to make airbags mandatory for the front passenger in all cars. However, this will also increase the cost of auto companies.

The price of cars will increase
According to the news, due to the additional features in the car, the price of cars is likely to increase. According to experts, companies will transfer the price of additional airbags to customers. According to this, adding a new airbag can increase the cost of the car from 40 thousand to 1 lakh rupees. At present, airbags are only mandatory for the driver’s seat in all cars, but there is definitely no airbag for the passenger sitting together, which also causes serious injury and death during the accident.
