Two-wheeler manufacturer will now have to sell a helmet along with their bikes and scooters after the Supreme Court today dismissed a plea by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers against such a step.
A bench comprising Justice G S Singhvi and Justice A K Ganguly dismissed the petition filed by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) challenging an earlier order of the Delhi High Court.

The apex court said the manufacturers would have to give BSI certified helmets as “original equipment”.

On July 30, 2009, the High Court made it mandatory for dealers to sell helmets along with new two-wheelers and said that the vehicle would not be registered by the authorities without it.

SIAM contended that the High Court order would restrict the people’s choice to buy their own helmet.
