"Taking into account the serious pollution levels in Delhi and adjoining areas, the Petroleum Ministry in consultation with public oil marketing companies has decided for preponement of BS-VI grade auto fuels in NCT of Delhi w.e.f 01.04.2018 instead of 01.04.2020", said a statement from the Petroleum Ministry.
The automobile industry body also welcomed the ministry's tentative plan to extend availability of Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) fuel across the national capital region (NCR) from April 1, 2019.
Dr Abhay Firodia in his role as the President of the Society Of Automotive Manufacturers (SIAM) said "the early introduction of BS VI fuel gives confidence to the Auto Industry that BS VI Fuel will be available across the country from 1st April 2020, when the Auto Industry will fully migrate to manufacturing only BS VI compliant vehicles on a pan India basis".
Industry players, however, have said that the rollout of the higher standard fuel in Delhi does not mean that BS-VI compliant vehicles will enter the Indian market before the stipulated deadline of 2020.
The move is an effort to reduce vehicular emissions and improve fuel efficiency in the national capital, the oil ministry said.
