BS VI readiness and roadmap in India

India will leapfrog to BS VI emissions standards in 2020 to cut emissions by 80-90 per cent from new vehicles. But real emissions and health benefits are possible only if these advanced technologies are properly operated and maintained and requirements for real world emissions tests are made tighter with strong deterrence for tampering.This discussion is needed immediately to speed up readiness in our cities by 2020 and also to inform and influence next round of revision of BS VI regulations in 2023. This policy brief undertakes a review of available information and proposes a roadmap to inform the post-2023 reforms of the BS VI regulations.
