Nitin Gadkari launches long-awaited Bharat New Car Assessment Programme (Bharat NCAP).


New Delhi: Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, inaugurated the Bharat New Car Assessment Programme (Bharat NCAP) today in New Delhi. The initiative aims to elevate safety standards for vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tonnes in India, ultimately enhancing road safety.


During his address to the audience, he emphasized that this launch represents a significant stride towards empowering consumers to make informed choices when purchasing vehicles with better safety features.


Nitin Gadkari highlighted that the Bharat NCAP will not only raise the safety and quality levels of vehicles in the country but will also foster healthy competition among Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to produce safer automobiles. He underscored that the collaboration between BHARAT NCAP and AIS-197 will be mutually beneficial for both manufacturers and consumers, ultimately contributing to safeguarding citizens' lives and positioning India's automobile industry as a global leader.


This program will be applicable to M1 category type-approved motor vehicles weighing less than 3.5 tonnes. It's a voluntary undertaking where the base variants of a given model will undergo testing.


Scheduled to commence on October 1, 2023, the program will adhere to the Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 197. Its primary goal is to establish an environment of competitive safety improvements, leading to heightened consumer awareness. By providing a comparative analysis of vehicle performance under crash test conditions, consumers can make well-informed decisions.


The NCAP initiative grants OEMs the opportunity to manufacture vehicles in line with global safety standards. The Central Institute of Road Transport (CIRT) will anchor this program, which has been developed through extensive stakeholder consultations.
