The Supreme Court of India on Wednesday said no BS4 vehicle shall be sold across India with effect from 1st April 2020.
Last year, Supreme court imposed a ban on sales of BS3 vehicles on/after 1st April 2017 – which resulted all auto manufacturers to clear their stocks by offering huge discounts and offers on BS3 vehicles.
The Bharat stage emission standard is used by Indian government to regulate output of air pollutants from vehicles that run on petrol and diesel. This essentially means only Vehicles equipped with BS6 engines are legally fit to be sold in India. The Bharat Stage VI emission norm shall be enforced from April 1, 2020 across India.
A 3 judge panel headed by Justice Madan B Lokur made it clear that only BS VI compliant vehicles shall be sold in the country from the date specified. Road getting tough for the auto-makers in India?
In the other news, Mahindra is revamping the JAWA Motorcycles brand by re-launching it with new 300cc engine that is BS6 compliant.
