Ministry of Road Transport has issued draft standards for safer and more fuel efficient tires in India

The Ministry of Road Transport has announced a draft rule that tires for automobiles, buses and trucks must meet the requirements for rolling resistance, wet grip and emission of rolling noise. This is a move aimed at ensuring tire quality and reliability.

The ministry has proposed this regime for new model tires from October 1, 2021 and existing models from October 1, 2022. “MoRT & H ensures that automobile, bus and truck tires meet the requirements for rolling resistance, wet grip, and rolling noise emission, as specified in Stage II of Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 142: 2019. We have issued a proposed draft notice, which has been revised from time to time. “

According to the ministry, tire rolling resistance affects fuel economy, and wet grip is related to tire braking performance in wet conditions.

He added that the rolling noise emission is related to the sound emitted from the contact between the tires and the road surface while driving.

“This standard must meet the Stage II limits of European regulations regarding tire sound emission, rolling resistance, and adhesion performance on wet surfaces (wet adhesion), which allows users to be informed. You can make a decision, “said the ministry.

These norms are similar to the European regime unfolded in 2016. The ministry said objections and proposals to these proposed rules could be sent to the government.
