Delhi & NCR Districts begin to supply BS-VI fuels for the public: Details, Aim, Significance

Delhi and adjoining cities in the National Capital Region (NCR) begins to supply of ultra-clean Euro-VI grade fuel (also known as Bharat Stage VI grade fuel) from 1st April 2019. 

Also, many cities in the 12 neighboring districts of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh including Agra switched over to the cleaner BS-VI fuel. 

The Bharat Stage VI grade fuel, both petrol, and diesel containing 10 parts per million (ppm) are being supplied in Alwar, Bharatpur, Karauli and Dholpur in Rajasthan and Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Ghaziabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Baghpat, Hapur, Bulandshahr, Shamli and Agra in Uttar Pradesh. 

However, the supplies to Gurugram and Faridabad, which were to get Euro-VI grade fuel from April 1, have been postponed. 

The Euro-VI grade fuel will be rolled out across India from April 2020. The Supreme Court on October 2018, ruled that no Bharat Stage-IV vehicle shall be sold across the country with effect from 1st April 2020.

Delhi in April 2018 became the first city in the country to roll-out ultra-clean Bharat Stage VI (BS-VI) grade fuel, both petrol, and diesel.
