BS-VI Grade Auto Fuels To Be Introduced In NCT Delhi Ahead Of Schedule

In January past year, the National Democratic Alliance government made a decision to move the country up to BS-VI from the current BS-IV standards by 2020, skipping an intermediate level.

"This (new) measure is expected to help mitigate the problem of air pollution in NCT (National Capital Territory) of Delhi and surrounding areas", it said in a statement.

India uses Euro-IV compliant fuels but a year ago chose to migrate to the Euro-VI level from April 2020, leapfrogging over Euro V norms.

To be sure the government has not asked the automotive industry or its apex lobby body the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) to advance the roll-out BS-VI compliant vehicles to April 1, 2018. In December 2015 the NGT had issued a ban on sale of diesel vehicles having engines bigger than 2000cc in the national capital.

However, India's largest passenger vehicle maker firm Maruti has said that it will be hard for them to get BS IV cars by 2018. Delhi also accounts for 3 percent of India's two-wheeler sales and 11 percent of north India's two-wheeler sales.

The organization is also touting the Beautify 3.0 component on it, which enhances selfie photographs. It is powered by a Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor and is available in 3GB/4GB RAM options.

Migration to BS-IV grade fuels shows India's resolve to cut down emissions.

The BS VI emission norms are said to be among the best in the world. These vehicles will be much cleaner than today's generation engines.

The automobile industry, which contributes 7.5% to the country's gross domestic product, is still anxious whether refineries are will be able to supply sufficient BS-VI-grade fuel across the country, even though the government has vowed to do that.

Only foreign manufacturers such as Renault, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo, MAN, Scania, Daimler Trucks to name a few sell BS-VI-ready vehicles in the western markets would be able to launch them in India because of ready availability of technology.
