If you are riding a bike, one thing that is a must is a “HELMET”!!
This is what Varun and our guest, Mr. Vir Nakai, founder of Helmet Stories are going to talk about
Now to standardize the quality of the helmets there are various Certifications and Tests carried out by the National and International Standardization Institutes, In India we have the ISI, while in abroad we have the ECE, SNELL,etc….
The Transport Ministry is making a rule to make use of helmets that are ISI certified “Mandatory”!!!
While this is a good initiative to promote safety of the citizen, whats not good is that all the Non-ISI helmets will be invalid…
From what we can understand from the information available, this regulatory change will change the business dynamics of the helmet marketplace, by requiring homologation of imported helmets. This is a tiny percentage of the market, and the requirement will likely make selling internationally-acclaimed helmets unfeasible or impossible. The greatest hit will be the customer — who will now have less choice. As it stands today, one can buy an ISI-branded helmet for as little as Rs 300 from a local manufacturer. If this proposal passes, those helmets will be legal, while the best helmets in the world costing hundreds of times more, will be verboten. It is not unreasonable to ask who exactly is being benefited here.
