Centre to Supreme Court: Sale of BS-VI non-compliant vehicles should stop from April 1, 2020
Updated : July 24, 2018 06:51 AM IST
In an affidavit filed in the apex court, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas said that it would not be possible to segregate pricing of diesel or have a differential pricing mechanism for the fuel for private vehicles.
The ministry told a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta that sale and manufacture of BS (Bharat stage)-VI non-compliant vehicles from April 1, 2020 would have an adverse affect since investment of around Rs 28,000 crore has already been made for having a cleaner BS-VI fuel.
During the hearing, the bench observed that taxi operators in Delhi could also be given incentives if they purchase BS-VI compliant vehicles.
