Auto Parts Asia: Effects of India’s New AIS 140 Policy

India’s new Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 140 is designed to revolutionize and innovate the public transportation system in India. Under these standards, all Indian public transit would need to have a GPS tracker. This allows for better control of the individual units and the system as a whole. In fact, every commercial vehicle would be outfitted with a tracker. These trackers would work in real time and must include an emergency button that would be able to notify authorities in the event of an accident. The new guidelines were announced in November 2016 by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. The Indian government gave all commercial vehicles a deadline of April 2019 to enforce the new requirements. The standards affect ambulances, private buses, public cars, rental cars, school buses, and taxis.
