Bharat NCAP

News: The Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, will be launching the Bharat New Car Assessment Programme (Bharat NCAP).

What is BNCAP?
• BNCAP is a new initiative by the Indian government to test and rate the safety of cars sold in India. It is similar to the Global NCAP, Euro NCAP, and other international agencies that conduct crash tests and assign star ratings to cars based on their performance.
• The BNCAP will test cars for frontal offset, side impact, and side pole impact at different speeds and measure the protection level for adult and child occupants.
• This initiative is a significant move towards enhancing road safety by elevating the safety standards of motor vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tonnes in India.
• The program aims to provide consumers with a tool for comparing the crash safety of different motor vehicles available in the market.
• Manufacturers can voluntarily submit their cars for testing according to Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 197.
• Based on the test results, vehicles will be assigned star ratings for both Adult Occupants (AOP) and Child Occupants (COP) safety.
