Cleaner BSVI grade Petrol and Diesel Hit National Capital Region from October 1
According to standards set in the BS-VI guidelines, the country will move to new emission norms by April 1 next year. This shift will result in a switch to cleaner BSVI grade fuel, from BSIV grade fuel, for both petrol and diesel automobiles. Though the implementation of new norms is a few months away, some states have already begun the preparation of switching to higher-grade fuels.
Delhi-NCR is among the early adopters of cleaner fuel, along with some districts from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Agra who have started to accept and switch to BSVI fuels before time. From October 1, every district in NCR has begun receiving BSVI grade Petrol and Diesel at Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Hindustan Petroleum Limited, and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited outlets.
Moreover, Indian Oil Corporation Limited refineries at Panipat and Mathura have also started providing BSVI grade petrol and diesel to meet the norms of cleaner fuel. With such states, initiating steps towards a cleaner fuel, it is possible that the entire country could accept and start the usage of BSVI before April 1.
