A MoRTH official said on Monday that the Indian government would soon make it mandatory for automakers to provide three-point seatbelts for all seats in the car, including the passenger in the middle seat at the back, a MoRTH official said on Monday.
Three-point seatbelts are currently mandatory for the front seat and two rear seats in cars sold in India. The rear middle seat, however, comes with a two-point lap seatbelt provided in the airplane. The ministry is expected to issue a notification in about a month after which comments will be sought from the public.
a Report Citing sources close to the matter, it has been suggested that the government aims to improve the overall safety of passenger cars manufactured in India. The ministry found that except for some models in India, no vehicle has a three-point seatbelt for passenger seats. In the event of an accident, this passenger is at great risk.
