A system similar to a loudspeaker Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) will need to be fitted by the vehicle manufacturer if the current design of the vehicle does not allow conformity to this standard.

The Automotive Industry Standards Committee (AISC) in India has suggested new regulations requiring electric vehicles to have an audible warning system to inform pedestrians and surrounding residents.

Newly proposed regulations include both passenger and cargo versions of four-wheeled vehicles. Once the permanent Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 (CMVR) Technical Standing Committee approves these proposed standards, automakers will need to revise vehicle designs as necessary (CTSC).

The installation and dimensions of saree guards, commonly found on Indian motorcycles, have also been proposed as norms for standardisation.

A safety device must be installed on the left side of the rear wheel of any two-wheeled vehicle that has a pillion rider provision. It is required that the protective device be installed on the left side of the rear tyre and that it covers "not less than half of the rear wheel, considering the tyre outer diameter," as stated in the draught.

Further, it has been proposed that electric two- and three-wheelers be subject to the regulations laid out in the California Motor Vehicle Code.

Specific requirements for construction equipment trucks with electric power trains are addressed in a different set of proposed standards. One further set of rules has been presented, and it concerns the placement of vehicle foot controls.

In addition, AISC has proposed criteria to ensure that heavy vehicles are produced in accordance with regulations governing their fuel usage at a constant speed. Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) and Gross Combination Weight (GCW) above 3.5 tones are included below.
