The industry sources are of the opinion that the Government is determined to move this forward despite the resistance, but after some accommodation of industry concerns.

Meanwhile, many of the new models produced for the country are being made with the scope for six airbags.

According to a study by JATO Dynamics, the price impact of an additional four airbags on a B-segment SUV would be around INR 17,600.

An airbag is an inflatable cushion designed to protect the occupants of a car from any major injuries in the event of a serious collision. A typical airbag consists of an airbag module, crash sensors and a diagnostic unit. It uses a canister, which contains sodium azide (NaN3) powder that inflates when the airbag explodes.
