DRIVING TRUCK IN INDIA IS NOW COOL!!

Under motor vehicle act, Government amends it mandatory for manufacturers to fit AC’s in the driver’s cabin of all new trucks sold from 1 April 2017.

In India truck drivers spend long hours in long-distance hauling even in adverse environmental condition like extreme cold or extreme heat, which is quite a tiresome job. But with AC being mandatory in all the trucks, drivers can now take a sigh of some relief along. As “Air-conditioning in trucks is not a comfort or a luxury feature but a feature that can prevent many serious road accidents, while making drivers cover more kilometers with less or no driver fatigue & more comfort & attention on road.

Government is remarkably taking all the necessary steps for the betterment of Road Transport in India while keeping in mind the health & comfort of commercial vehicle drivers. It perhaps is one of those conscious efforts that govt. is taking to make India a developed country as soon as possible while making it possible to attain some degree of physical comfort for  people engaged in a punishing profession of carrying cargo year-round in often harsh weather and terrain.

With AC coming in all the Truck cabins, government is looking forward to remove the misconception that AC leads to additional fuel consumption, as fact is that Non-AC Automotives weather heavy or light are driven with open windows, which results in extra fuel consumption because of all the wind coming in and its drag.

According to the research and direct comparison this has been proven that efficient AC Trucks provide better mileage, thereby providing overall profitability for truck customers.

Under Motor Transport Workers Act, 1961, government also guarantees a minimum wage of Rs14, 500 per month (in Delhi) along with provident fund, gratuity and medical services, as Truck Drivers  affect the Indian National Economy directly and there health & working condition is the topic of major concern.

Sameer Malhotra (CEO, Shriram Automall) added “I am glad to see all the major steps government is taking for improving work condition of truck drivers in India, as these people work hard day in and day out to meet deadlines of importing & exporting goods. This move will also put truck manufacturers in a fix to produce Trucks only with built in AC & according to Bharat Stage IV emission norms
