On many occasions, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has talked about the importance of six airbags in cars. Recently, Gadkari said that the ministry is working towards making six airbags compulsory in all cars.
“The same manufacturers put 6 airbags when they export those cars. Then why do you put only 4 airbags in Indian cars? Don’t our lives have any values? An airbag costs only Rs 900 and when the number increases, the cost will only come down,” the minister said recently.
He has also made it clear that seat belts will be made mandatory for the occupants in the rear seat in cars.
