'Euro VI fuel to be in metros before 2020'

'Euro VI fuel to be in metros before 2020'

 Euro VI compliant fuel may be introduced in metros much ahead of the April 1, 2020 deadline, ensuring that Delhi is accorded topmost priority in the rollout plan, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said.

India has decided to leapfrog directly from Euro IV emission norms for petrol and diesel to Euro VI standards and the oil PSUs will invest Rs 28,750 crore for the transition.

“I want to work seriously for Delhi especially with regard to minimising its high pollution levels. We have already announced to implement Euro VI emission norms for vehicles from April 1, 2020. Now we are thinking to provide Euro VI compliant fuel in metro cities with top priority to Delhi very soon,” Road Transport and Highways Minister Gadkari said.
