Minister Nitin Gadkari urged vehicle manufacturers to improve quality and
standards constantly to align with international benchmarks. He mandated safety
audits at all stages of road development to reduce accidents.
virtually in an event organised by MIT-ADT University, Gadkari said that
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in India were performing poorly despite
having a good market share in the Indian auto industry. He added that OEMs
should remember their social responsibility and ensure that they manufacture
vehicles without compromising with the global crash standards, even if it comes
at a higher cost.
Gadkari shared his
vision to achieve a 50% reduction in road accident deaths by 2025 and zero
accidents and deaths by 2030. He added that in the global scenario, vehicle
engineering technology has matured to a great extent. He stressed the
importance of training drivers and establishing advanced training institutes
