Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission standards

Last updated: 12 May 2021
In 2016, the government published Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission standards for motor vehicles effective in April 2020. They address all major vehicle types and include provisions that will ensure clean fuels are available alongside the introduction of new, low-emitting vehicles. Bypassing stage V implementation will largely align Indian emission standards with Euro 6/VI regulations in place in the European Union.
