Introduced in 2000, the Bharat Stage Emissions Standards (BSES) is an automotive emission standard that is authorised by the Government of India. The implementation of this standard helps in keeping a check on air pollutants emitted by the passenger as well as commercial vehicles. The mandates of the emission standards are curated under the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change by the Central Pollution Control Board.
BS6 – Initiating an Important Shift towards Green Mobility
When we moved from BS3 to BS4, even though the changes were subtle; the tweaks in the exhaust system were stricter than before. However, the transition from BS4 to BS6 brings the emission norms followed by the India automotive industry at par with the rest of the world. Right from changes in the powertrains to tweaks in the exhaust system; BS6 aims at substantially reducing emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Non-Methane Hydrocarbons (NMHC), and other such vehicular pollutants.
Bear in mind that BS6 emission norms are applicable to both petrol and CNG cars. Given CNG’s environment-friendly character, the combination of BS6 and CNG is a big step towards eco-friendly vehicles and today, whether you buy a top-selling petrol sedan or the best CNG hatchback, Maruti Suzuki cars in India are now fully BS6 compliant.
