Central Government Plans Policy For Vehicle Recall: To Be Made Mandatory
DriveSpark | 22nd Oct, 2019 07:12 PM

The government is in the process of toughening its stance towards faulty vehicles and faulty components, especially those that involve passenger safety. Reports are that the Central Government is working towards a policy for a mandatory recall of entire batches of vehicles if the number of defects breach a pre-defined threshold (a pre decided percentage of vehicles sold).

The new policy, that is currently under debate and discussion will mark a shift from the current practice of manufacturers having to resort to voluntary recalls of vehicles. The policy will also provide for cancellation of registration and licenses of the vehicle testing agency in case an approval certificate is issued.

The trouble with vehicle testing agencies and the nexus between themselves and auto manufacturers surfaced in 2013 when General Motors recalled units of the Tavera over emission and other issues.

General Motors received type approval from the (ARAI) Automotive Research Association of India. The auto manufacturer had allegedly fitted approved engines in new Tavera models sent for emission inspection.

While we know that the new policy change will empowers the Road Transport Ministry to order a recall a faulty vehicle(s) or component(s), no decision has been reached in regard to the percentage of faulty vehicles of a particular model which would trigger such a recall.

The ministry has also sought suggestions considering that the volume of vehicles produced varies depending on the make and model. For example, a luxury car model sold in a market could be in few hundred in numbers, while another for the mass market could be in the thousands or lakhs.

Thoughts About The Vehicle Recall Policy The Government Is Working On

Good. We need this. There are some manufactures that voluntary recall vehicles when they discover an issue, and there are those that simply do not care. While we are always amazed and entertained with the Central government's policies and laws, we remain unsure about how this one will be executed. The last big change to the law was a heavy increase in traffic fines, and pretty much no one cares, the government included.
