National Road Safety Week is organised every year from 11-17 January in India by the National Safety Council of India (NSC). NSC is an autonomous body which has been established by the government for engaging the public in health, safety, and environment-related issues. NSC along with regional governments encourages organisations like schools, colleges, emergency services professionals, businesses, and community groups to participate in the Road Safety Week activities. Groups like the International Road Federation and the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers have also been involved. Road safety is a big health concern for Indian authorities. According to the official website of Road Safety Week, more than 139,000 road deaths were reported in 2012.

Casualties in India account for around 10 per cent of road deaths around the globe. The regional governments are encouraged by India’s Ministry of Road Transport & Highways to take the lead on Road Safety Week initiatives. The ministry also gives a list of suggested activities to the regional governments for promoting road safety in their region. A budget is allocated by the Ministry to each state to help them organise these activities and engage the public.
