Mandatory AC norms of commercial vehicles to be rolled out from January 1, 2025
India's decision to mandate air conditioning in truck cabins is a welcome step, given the country's high rate of road accidents.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has mandated the installation of air conditioning systems in the cabins of motor vehicles belonging to categories N2 and N3, from vehicles manufactured from January 1, 2025.
Trucks are classified into three categories based on their Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW). N1 trucks have a GVW of 3.5 tonnes or less, N2 trucks have a GVW of 3.5 to 12 tonnes, and N3 trucks have a GVW of 12 tonnes or more.
In a draft notification dated July 10, the note from the government said, the performance testing of the cabin fitted with air conditioning system shall be as per IS 14618:2022 as amended from time to time.
The comments and suggestions have been invited from the stakeholders within 30 days from the date of notification i.e. - 10th of July.
