SC proposes roll out of BS VI fuel by next year in 13 metros

New Delhi, Mar 27 (ANI): The Supreme Court (SC) today proposed a roll out of Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) fuel across 13 metros by April 1, 2019. The top court directed the central government to consult the Oil Marketing Companies(OMCs) and get their reply on this proposal.

Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had earlier said "We plan to launch BS-VI compliant fuel by April 2020". Earlier the apex court had slapped a ban on all BS-III vehicles, which came as a big blow to the automobile companies, as they were sitting on an inventory worth Rs.

12,000 crore. March 31, 2018, had been set as the deadline to take all these vehicles off the roads.
