Bharat NCAP, created for safety testing of vehicles in the country, will start functioning from December 15. India is the fifth country in the world to have created such a system for car crash testing. Earlier, testing of cars was done by Global NCAP.

This type of system already exists for testing vehicles in America, China, Japan and South Korea. According to a media report, dummy tests have been given on the website of Bharat NCAP. Some of the images used on this website indicate the cars that will initially be crash tested. Hyundai Motor, one of the big automobile companies, had confirmed sending its cars for this testing. These may include the company's Exter SUV and the new Creta SUV. Apart from this, some major automobile companies like Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors can also send their cars for testing.

South Korea's Hyundai has announced to make six airbags available as standard in all its models in the country. Apart from this, the company will also make other safety features like three point seatbelt and seatbelt reminder available in all variants. 10 out of 13 Hyundai models will be offered with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) as standard across all models and variants. The company has said that five of its models will also have Advanced Driver Aids System (ADAS). Hyundai's new Verna received a five-star safety rating in the Global NCAP crash test.

Bharat NCAP is an important step to improve road safety in the country. Under this, safety standards have been increased for motor vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes. This will make it easier for car buyers to assess the crash safety of motor vehicles available in the automobile market. Under Bharat NCAP, car makers will be able to voluntarily get their cars tested. Star ratings will be given based on the car's performance in crash tests. Before buying a car, customers will be able to compare the safety standards of different vehicles by looking at this rating.
