The Central Motor Vehicles Rules has got new amendments in its kitty. One of them is that manufacturers no longer need to put in a spare wheel in the boot. If your car falls in the M1 category that is specified by the CMVR, fitted with tubeless tyres and a tyre pressure monitoring system, then it is exempt from having a spare wheel. Instead of TPMS, if the manufacturer were to offer a puncture repair kit, then this too will be considered as a reason to leave the spare wheel out. If you’re thinking on what is the M1 category, then the CMVR states that it is a passenger vehicle that has no more than eight seats, including the driver. The CMVR also states that the puncture repair kit in the car should have a sealant as well as air pressure compressing device along with it.
