Car Manufacturers To Fit The Vehicles With ISI Mark Windshields And Windows

One of the things that a customer sees before buying a vehicle is its safety features. Automobile manufacturers have come a long way as far as the safety of the vehicles is concerned. The vehicles are crashed over and over with dummies inside to see what kind of damage the occupants will face in a similar real-life scenario.

However, according to a recent report by Autocar India, the Bureau of Indian Standards is currently planning to mandate the use of the ISI marked windscreens and windows of all cars. Moreover, this rule will not only apply to cars manufactured in India, but also to those brought down by the CKD route.

The use of ISI mark on the windshield is being put to action as it is safe for the customers. Most of the times when the car is involved in an accident and then goes to a repair workshop especially for the glasswork, the replacements in the after sales and service market have been causing problems. This is due to the use of the same kind of windshield but, in a lower quality, which is highly dangerous for the occupants.

There is a similar rule that mentions all tyres sold in India have to have an ISI mark. Same in the case of helmets, the ISI mark is mandatory for better safety. Including this in the car windshield along with the other glasses will automatically increase the cost of production for the manufacturers, but it will keep the passengers safe.

However, this process could take some time, so the Bureau is likely to give the car manufacturers a lead time of around six months. The current proposed date for reinforcing the ISI mark is April 1, 2021. Some manufacturers have already started to install the approved windshields and glasses on the vehicles. This rule, however, is not likely to apply to cars that have been directly imported through the CBU route.

By applying this rule, the Bureau of Indian Standards is doing a fantastic job. By doing this, yes, the cost of the product will go up, but at the same time, there will be an extra amount of safety for all the occupants inside the vehicle.
