Notification regarding Amendment in BS VI emission norms
The Ministry of Road Transportation and Highways (MRTH) has come out with this draft notification which amends Central Motor Vehicles Rules to prevent the registration of BS-IV compliant vehicles built before April 1, 2020 beyond June 30, 2020. This ban will be applicable to vehicles manufactured before April 1, 2020, which is also the date of the rollout of BS-VI pollution norms across the country.
The government has come out with a draft notification to amend Central Motor Vehicles Rules to prevent registration of BS-IV compliant automobiles built before April 1, 2020 beyond June 30, 2020. In a major step to curb vehicular pollution, the government last year decided that the country will leapfrog directly from Euro IV emission norms for petrol and diesel to Euro VI standards from April 1, 2020. Issuing draft notification to amend Central Motor Vehicles Rules, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has invited objections and suggestions from stakeholders, affected persons and public by December 20 for consideration.
