Road Safety in India: Navigating through nuances

July 2023 | Defence & Homeland Security

Road traffic injuries and fatalities have continued to grow in India at an alarming rate. In fact, it is the top cause of fatalities for the age group of 5-29 years in India. Converted to monetary terms, losses from road safety incidents are estimated to be around 3% of India’s GDP. Although, it is a global concern, the quantum and complexity of the problem in India is higher compared to other countries. Collaboration of all stakeholders is the key to a fast-track implementation approach. This report attempts to bring out analytics of data available publicly, and global and Indian best practices, and picks a few cases of crashes to delve into the reasons for their occurrence so that various government bodies and private organizations can benefit from them and incorporate these into their policies, guidelines, or practices. This report will help corporates in learning from the experiences of other companies in mitigating occupational road risks and in possible adoption of some of them to increase efficiency of businesses.
