A new study shows that the number of people who die in automobile accidents has been steadily rising in India.
The latest statistics show that the national death toll from accidents in India rose by 1.6% in 2016.
The rate of increase is higher than any other Asian country, according to the report by the Centre for Injury Research and Policy (CIRP).
“The trend is very worrying,” said A. Raj, the president of the Centre and a former director of the Indian Statistical Institute.
“In 2016, the number was 1,879,000. “
It is a trend that cannot be reversed,” he said.
“In 2016, the number was 1,879,000.
It has already risen by nearly 1.5% since the beginning of the year.
In India, it is estimated that nearly 70,000 people are killed in automobile crashes each year.
The rise in the number is not surprising, because the number has been growing in India for a long time.
But it is alarming,” said Raj.
“This increase is not sustainable and cannot be expected to continue.
There is a need to find better ways of preventing accidents.”
The CIRP report, which covers the period from 2001 to 2016, shows that more than 6,300 people died in automobile accident in India in 2016, an increase of 11.8% compared to the previous year.
While auto accidents account for just 5% of the deaths in India, they account for 20% of deaths due to traffic accidents, 7% of traffic accidents in the state of Maharashtra and 2.6%, of suicides in the country.
A recent survey carried out by CIRPs researchers found that about 80% of suicides are committed by a single person, and that about one-third of all suicides in India are committed with alcohol.
The report says that about 4.6 million people in India died of an automobile accident last year, an average of 2,000 deaths per year.
This means that more deaths are taking place in India than in any other country in the world.
The CIRCP study said that India had one of the highest rates of auto accidents in Europe, and in the United States, a study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that nearly two-thirds of the total U.S. traffic fatalities are caused by crashes involving automobiles.
India has the second-highest number of auto fatalities in the European Union.
India also has the highest number of deaths from air pollution, which has been rising at a steady rate.
According to the World Health Organization, air pollution kills more people in the developing world than all other causes combined.
India had more than 1,000 air pollution-related deaths in 2016 and more than 500 in 2017.
It also has more than half of the world’s population, about one million people.
“The increasing number of traffic deaths is a huge challenge for the government, as we have one of Asia’s most vulnerable populations,” said Ajay Bhattacharya, the founder of the All India Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association.
“We have the highest traffic deaths in the nation and there are very few things we can do to reduce traffic deaths,” he told DW.
The Indian government has been investing in new technology, such as air bags, seat belts, side impact sensors and even electronic stability control (ESC).
But Raj believes that the government has a long way to go in getting the situation under control.
“They are not taking the right measures.
They are not putting enough resources to develop the infrastructure,” he added.
“India is a country where we are working to create a car culture where people feel comfortable driving in a safe environment,” said Bhattocharya.
“I think the government is working to bring this culture to the country.”
