According to ARAI, which comes under the Ministry of Heavy Industries, the new rule will make travel more comfortable than before. The objective of introducing star rating is to ensure that the tyre is more fuel-efficient and reliable. With this, oil consumption can be reduced by up to ten percent. These ratings will also give an idea of how the tire grips on twisty and gusty roads. Along with this, information will also be given in this rating about which tire saves how much fuel.
