Indian Government Plans For Complete Crash Test For All Indian Cars


A new health check-up plan for indian cars is in progress. All the new cars launching in India may have to undergo complete crash test. A test facility is being built up in Chennai for such state of the art testing techniques. Reportedly, road transport ministry has started consulting with Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and other ministries to start this "New Car Assessment Program" (NCAP).

Yet the process may take a while."Many states have not even notified the maximum speed limit. How can you go ahead with planning big things until you have the basics in place? We should not be in a hurry to do copycat of the norms and standards of Europe," said a government official.

Where organisations like National Highway traffic safety Association (NHTSA) and Australasian New Car Assessment Programme in Australia (ANCAP) have set crash testing standards, National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRiP) is establishing up-to-the-minute facility with Centre of Excellence for Passive Safety at GARC-Chennai. This facility is capable of carrying out cutting edge technology tests like car-to-car angular test, full car crash test, sled test.
