The Importance of Bharat NCAP
India has taken a significant step towards ensuring the safety of its citizens by launching the Bharat New Car Assessment Program (Bharat NCAP or BNCAP). This indigenous car crash safety test and evaluation program is set to revolutionize the automobile industry in India.
With the implementation of Bharat NCAP from October 1, 2023, India joins the ranks of the United States, China, Japan, and South Korea, becoming the fifth country in the world to adopt such a comprehensive security test and evaluation protocol.
The primary goal of Bharat NCAP is to improve the safety standards of cars manufactured in India. By subjecting vehicles to stringent crash tests and evaluations, this program aims to ensure that cars meet the highest safety standards before they hit the roads. This move is a significant stride towards reducing road accidents and saving lives.
