A recent report published by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) states that the auto industry has not sought any deferment or delay in the implementation of BS IV Emission Norm.
This was clarified by Vinod Dasari, President, SIAM. In the statement issued, Dasari added that contrary to the misinformation being perpetuated by certain sections of the society, specially environmental activists, the auto industry is fully committed to commence manufacturing of BS IV vehicles from April 1, 2017, across the country. The auto industry has fully complied with all technical regulations in the past and will remain fully compliant in future also.
Here are some more BS-IV related news articles:
The Indian auto industry will also be the first in the world to leapfrog from BS IV to BS VI Emission norms in a short period of three years by 2020, while even the developed countries took about 10 years and also progressed stage by stage without any leapfrogging. The record of the Indian automotive industry in respect of compliance with all Technical Regulations has always been impeccable, he added.
The statements suggesting that the auto industry wants to delay or postpone the Emission norms are, hence, totally false and deliberately designed to malign the name of the auto industry and stigmatize an industry which is well recognised as a Champion in Nation Building and a main contributor to the Make in India effort of the Prime Minister of India, Dasari said.
