India: how to say vehicle inspection


New Member
Hello, I need to know how do people refer to statutory vehicle inspections in India. If two languages are frequently used, then in both, please.

It would be the official inspection all vehicles are subjected to by legal requirement.

Thank you very much for your help in advance, take care and stay safe.

    Many, not just two, languages are frequently and officially used in India. In Hindi, "vehicle inspection" would be वाहन निरीक्षण ("vaahan niriikshaNR").

    Also, private vehicles, I believe, do not have to undergo statutory vehicle inspections in India (or, I am in serious violation), except for the regular emission checks for pollution control. This may be different for commercial vehicles, like taxis, trucks, etc.
