Bharat Stage Emission Norms: Govt Extends Deadline For Two-Wheelers

The deadline for a pan-India rollout of Bharat Stage III emission norms for four–wheelers, which was originally set for April 2010, is now delayed to October this year. This is because the public sector refiners could not meet the deadline and planned a staggered rollout in different cities. The government had earlier asked auto manufacturers to upgrade their two-wheelers to BS III from BS II norms by April 1. However, under the new norms, they would be given time till July 1 to convert their models to BS III for sale in 13 select cities, and till October 1 for pan-India upgrade.

The new deadline was fixed due to unavailability of BS III compliant fuel in many states. Analysts believe conversion from BS II to III will make a two-wheelers expensive by about Rs 1,000.
