The union government of India has come out with a 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. Last year, the government had announced that the country would directly leapfrog to Euro VI emission norms for petrol and diesel vehicles from the ongoing Euro IV from April 1, 2020, meanwhile skipping the Euro V emission norms altogether. This initiative was taken to curb the rising levels of vehicular pollution.

The Government has pre-poned the BS VI fuel to April 1, 2018 for Delhi-NCR!

Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, issuing the draft notification to amend Central Motor Vehicles Rules, has also invited objections and suggestions from stakeholders, affected persons and public by December 20 for consideration. The notification further read that these new rules will be called the Central Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Rules, 2017 and shall come into force on the date of their final publication in the Official Gazette. The official notification said: "New motor vehicles conforming to Emission Standard Bharat Stage-IV, manufactured before April 1, 2020 shall not be registered after June 30, 2020." The amendment in the rule would take place under the the powers conferred by section 110 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

The notification further said, "provided that, the new motor vehicles of categories M & N, conforming to Emission Standard BS-IV, manufactured before April 1, 2020 and sold in the form of drive away chasis, shall not be registered after September 30, 2020." Vehicles having at least four wheels and used for the carriage of passengers fall under category M while power- driven vehicles having at least four wheels and used for the carriage of goods fall under category N. Speaking of the decision of advancement of implementation of of BS VI (equivalent to Euro VI norms followed globally) by four years to April 1, 2020, it was taken at an inter- ministerial meeting for supply of cleaner auto fuel.
