Automakers to declare emission & noise pollution data from April 2017

It will soon become mandatory for automakers to declare emission and noise pollution data for every vehicle in their portfolio. The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has issued an official notification informing automakers about the new guidelines, which will come into practice from April 1, 2017.

All motor vehicles that run on petrol, CNG, LPG, electric, diesel and hybrid power will fall under this ruling. Even e-rickshaws and e-carts, which were till now out of such emission data accumulation, will now require the said declaration. Agricultural and construction vehicle manufacturers too will be required to submit the desired information.

The Ministry has also revised "Form 22" under the "Central Motor Vehicles Act, 1989". This form will now also require details about the sound pollution readings from the vehicle, including sound level for the horn as well as pass-by noise values.

While supercars will be rated poor on Noise pollution which will not matter so much, so will be the Enfields and there it would matter.

May be there should be noise pollution tax as well.

Is there a decibel limit for vehicles? I don't think there is, because the Piaggio Ape would not be legal otherwise.
