G-20 Summit : Government Invests Rs 400 Crore in Bulletproof Audi Vehicles

The G20 Summit will be held in New Delhi, the capital of India, in 2023, and preparations are already well under way on the part of the Indian administration. To minimize any issues that arise during the special event, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has already proclaimed a public holiday in Delhi from September 8–10.

For the G20 Summit in 2023, representatives from more than 25 countries will go to India with their leaders. If you travel around central Delhi, you can see some of the specific arrangements that the Indian government has already made for the visitors arriving from different parts of the world.

The government is apparently investing a sizeable sum to ensure that the G20 Summit goes off without a hitch, including more than Rs 400 crore to purchase armoured automobiles for the guests.

The ministry of foreign affairs (MEA) reportedly purchased 50 left-hand drive (LHD) bulletproof Audi vehicles from Germany, according to a report by Hindustan Times citing a top Delhi Police officer.

Although the precise make and type of the vehicle are unknown, the Audi A8 L security is a popular candidate. The previous edition of the bulletproof vehicle, which had a price tag of more than Rs 9 crore when it was introduced in India in 2017, and one may anticipate that the subsequent models will cost much more than that.

The cost will still be close to Rs 400 crore, even if the German government offers to finance the entry of bulletproof cars into India. Due to the fact that driving an LHD vehicle in India is prohibited, Delhi Police is also having a lot of problems with the special convoys.

The agency is concerned about LDH vehicles sharing roads with right-hand drive (RHD) automobiles, even if police may disregard the legality aspect. Only India, Australia, Japan, South Africa, and the UK employ RHD automobiles among the G20 members.
