Press Trust of India has informed that the Ministry of Road, Transport, and Highway today announced that the 2-Wheelers will have to compulsory manufacture and use BIS-certified helmets. This will reduce the low-quality helmets sold in India and also help in saving the lives of the rider during accidents.
Following the directions of the Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety, a committee was formulated to consider lighter helmets in India suiting the country’s climatic conditions and that for ensuring compliance among citizens to wear the helmets. The total number of two-wheelers being manufactured in India annually is nearly 1.7 crore.
This is great news especially for unlisted companies like Studds Accessories, as the use of BIS-certified helmets will help the company in gaining more market share from the unorganized players which were selling non-standard helmets.
