New Delhi: Going back on the 6 airbags rule for passenger cars slated to come into force from October, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said that the government has no intention to make it mandatory for all cars in India. Notably, the minister introduced the need for the 6 airbags rule for passenger cars in 2022.

Speaking at an automotive event in New Delhi the minister said, “We don’t want to make six airbags rule for cars mandatory as people are cautious. Whatever models have six airbags, people may prefer to take that car. It’s up to the manufacturers and people to decide.”

Reacting about the mandatory six airbag norms in India, Gadkari in September 2002 tweeted that “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.”
