  • VI fuels to be sold in Delhi from April 1, 2018

"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.

Introduced in 2000, Bharat Stage norms are emission standards set up the Centre to regulate the output of air pollutants from internal combustion engine equipment. The actual deadline for manufacturers to meet the BS VI norms is April 2020.

The decision - the immediate motivation appears to be the poor air quality in New Delhi - will make cars, sports utility vehicles (SUVs), trucks and buses more expensive.

Jnaneswar Sen, Sr VP, Marketing and Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd responded to the move by the Ministry Of Petroleum And Natural Gas today saying, "We welcome the decision of Petroleum ministry to supply BS - VI fuel in Delhi from April 2018".

Delhi is one of the single largest vehicle and two-wheeler markets in India accounting for 7 percent of India's total auto volumes and 25 percent of total sales in north India. With the launch of BS-IV grade fuel, a new era of clean transportation fuels began, substantially reducing pollution levels.

Automakers were so far required to be ready with the BS-VI compliant vehicles by 1 April 2020.
