Two-wheeler owners to now use only BIS-certified helmets, govt issues notification


Now, two-wheeler owners in India will wear only Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS)-certified helmets, as the government on Friday said only BIS-certified helmets would be manufactured and sold in India for two-wheelers. According to a statement provided by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the development would help avoiding sale of low-quality two-wheeler helmets in the country. This, in turn, would help avoid fatal injuries in case of road accidents, it said.
