Centre to Supreme Court: Sale of BS-VI non-compliant vehicles should stop from April 1, 2020

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.
