Nitin Gadkari, the Minister of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has announced that he has approved the draft GSR (General Statutory Rules) notification for Bharat NCAP or New Car Assessment Programme. Like other safety watchdogs around the world, the Bharat NCAP will test the crashworthiness of automobiles sold in India by awarding them stars based on their performance in crash tests. Gadkari said that “Bharat NCAP’s test protocol should be aligned with global crash test protocols taking into account existing Indian regulations, allowing OEMs to have their vehicles tested at India’s own in-house testing facilities. “.

The Union Minister believes that the new Bharat NCAP will serve as a consumer-centric platform that will enable car buyers in India to opt for safer cars based on their star rating. He says it will also promote healthy competition among OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in India to build safer vehicles. Nitin Gadkari also said, “Bharat NCAP will prove to be a vital instrument in making our automotive industry Aatmanirbhar with a mission to make India the number 1 automotive hub in the world.”

Until now, the Global NCAP has been testing Indian-made cars as part of its “Safer Cars for India” initiative, which rates vehicles on their crashworthiness. Although there have been several low security cars like Maruti S-Presso, Swift or Hyundai Grand i10 Nios which have been rated between 0 and 2 stars, we have also seen 5 star rated cars in India like the Mahindra XUV700, XUV300, Tata Nexon, Punch and Altroz.
