With the mandate of government applicable from April 2018, to essentially follow the AIS 140 standard, it becomes necessary for all commercial vehicle owners to equip their vehicle with the latest modules available with AIS 140 certification.
While equipping the vehicle with the AIS 140 certified devices, vehicle owners must keep in mind certain guidelines that have been laid by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) to safeguard their vehicles from being blacklisted on the roads. These guidelines include all following vehicles:
• State and government-owned buses and vehicles
• Ambulances and all emergency response vehicles
• All educational institutions vehicles
• Rented cars and vehicles
As per the AIS 140 notification, all the above-mentioned vehicles must adhere to AIS 140 regulation and in order to do so most of the vehicle owners equip their vehicles with GPS tracker capable of proffering tracking ability. Although many companies are available in the market which claims to manufacture AIS 140 certified devices, owners must be careful while buying them and seek expert advice if needed.
Although, AIS 140 Implementation date has been changed by government many times and it is still not fixed yet. The tentative AIS 140 implementation date is scheduled to be in July 2019.
