BUS BODY CODE AIS: 052 SOONER FOR SAFER AND COMFIER JOURNEY


We all know that in our country i.e. India, the demand and requirement of people for easy mobility from one place to another is growing.  And for traffic policy makers, this demand has created a significant stress, as with increase in transportation, environmental sensitivity increase as well.

Government is taking all the required steps, to improve the on road experience of commuters while providing them, the pollution free environment.

So, now while taking one step ahead, government has decided to implement bus body code AIS: 052. This code seems to have missed two deadlines i.e. of April’2010 and April’2015 but Union transport ministry appears to be quite serious this time.

This bus body code will ensure that buses are built as per stipulated standards related to safety, design and comfort. To demonstrate their capabilities to build buses as per the safety standards set by ARAI, CIRT and ICAT, every bus manufacturing unit will have to obtain accreditation certificate according to this code.

This new order code might not be acceptable to bus builders and operators, but it would be a great relief to passengers. As if this code gets implemented, Passengers can except to have a safe and relaxing journey, as they will have wider relaxing seats, more leg room, low steps and much more to ensure comfortable journey.

And manufacturers will also have to look forward to not using the poor material they use which then becomes the reason of accidents, and to look after changing the design which results in poor journey, extreme heat, intolerable vibration, noise and poor safety standards.

As operators demand for low-cost vehicle has resulted in poor poorly engineered designs and faulty fabrication practices which bring passenger safety in question. But now all bodybuilders, who want to stay in business, will have to submit an assessment for accreditation by a National Accreditation Board (NAB). RTO approval will also be dependent on this.

The motor vehicle department has already amended the central motor vehicles rule 125C (accreditation of bus body builders), thereby introducing the code for the same.

Due to unavailability of facilities, government was not able to implement this rule, in 1st October’2014, when it was supposed to replace with the new sub-rule 125 (1). But, now government is all set to go to improve the passenger mobility experience in buses.


“I am glad to see the way government is moving forward, keeping in mind both the health of passengers and environment, I myself, look forward to be a responsible citizen and play a part in Indian Economy. While following all the rules and regulations, I will make sure that all the customers that visit Automall regarding their used Automotive requirements, get services compliant with new rules and regulations ” said SameerMalhotra (CEO, Shriram Automall)
