The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways on November 26 issued the \u2018Helmets for riders of Two Wheelers Motor Vehicles (Quality Control) Order, 2020.\u2019 Protective Helmets for Two Wheeler Riders have been included under compulsory BIS certification and the publication of the Quality Control Order. A committee was formulated as per the directions of the Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety for considering lighter helmets in India suiting the country's climatic conditions and that for ensuring compliance amongst citizens to wear the protective gear. The Committee had experts from different fields, including expert doctors from AIIMS and also from BIS. The Committee in March 2018 after detailed analysis in its report recommended lighter helmets in the Country, and the Ministry accepted the report. As per the recommendations of the Committee, the BIS has revised specifications through which it is expected to make lighter helmets. With good competition in the Indian markets and with numerous helmet manufacturers, now it is expected that the competition would enable good quality and lighter demand. The total number of two-wheelers being manufactured in India annually is nearly 1.7 crore. QCO would mean that only BIS certified two-wheeler helmets would be manufactured and sold in the Country for two-wheelers. This would help in avoiding the sale of low-quality two-wheeler helmets in the Country which would in turn help in protecting citizens involved in two-wheeler accidents from fatal injuries.
