The Indian government has pushed for stricter requirements for vehicle safety, such as a uniform crash test rating for all cars sold in the nation, the installation of six airbags in all cars and SUVs, and the use of three-point seat belts. It is anticipated that this regulation will go into effect in October 2023.
