Delhi to get BS VI fuels sooner than planned

Delhi to get BS VI fuels sooner than planned

The government has decided to roll out Bharat Stage VI fuels two years before schedule in a bid to fight the rising pollution levels in Delhi. Adapting to BS VI norms for cars will require major changes to the cars and this would put manufacturers in a state of panic so for now the government hasn’t asked automakers to make the switch immediately, but the move could bring pressure on the industry to advance the introduction of such vehicles that are now scheduled for an April 2020 rollout in India. 

The older cars which were adhering to the BS III and BS IV norms will have no problems using the new BS VI fuel. The government has asked oil manufacturing companies to study the feasibility of providing BS-VI fuels to the National Capital Region by April, 2019. The decision to roll out BS-VI instead of BS-V after BS-IV emission norms has been taken to meet global standards on carbon emission. While the auto industry agrees that this is a step in the right direction, they were not in a position to bring out the BS VI vehicles prior to 2020.
