From February 1st, only helmets with ISI mark allowed in Bengaluru

The orders to enforce the rule in Bengaluru city comes days after the Mysuru police's campaign against poor quality helmets caught the attention of Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy.

Meanwhile, many bikers have questioned the additional commission on why wearing the supposedly safer helmets certified by DOT and ECE would attract penalty. In response to it, the commissioner tweeted,

A lot of motorcyclists riding high-end superbikes opt for imported helmets that are DOT/ECE certified but don't have the ISI mark on them as their manufacturers do not apply for ISI certification. The helmets that are DOT and ECE are said to be of a higher quality and protection standard when compared to those with ISI certification.
