I fail to understand how a M800 selling in the non metros covered under BSIII save us from pollution. I am sure the cumulative number of M800 is still more in non metros than in metros considering its low cost.

and for all your information from 1st Apr 2010 all vehicles in metros should be BSIV compliant and all Vehicles in non metros will be BSIII compliant. BSII will out of this country.

Bharat Stage IV for the metros is around the corner.

Can we compile a list of cars that would potentially be
a) Phased out
b) Upgraded, to comply with the norms.

This would help purchase decisions over the next few months.

# Is the Octavia (petrol & diesel) a victim?
# Surely the ageing Lancer will be removed from Metro showrooms?
# Palio Stile 1.6?
# Accent 1.5?
# Ikon 1.3 petrol?
# The Swift is already due for an upgrade
# What happens to the Alto?

yes Ikon and Festia are in the list,I could see the Red plate Ikon and Festia doing rounds of testing in and around Tambaram.so we can expect soon Ikon and Festia BIV compliant.

know for sure that the Octavia is going to be phased out, but smart guys are continuing to sell the same in smaller towns. Its going to be phased out in 2010.

I agree

Govt has no clue. These trucks will never get off the road. They keep welding it and modifying it to keep it on the road forever.

If the metros were to become BS IV compliant, the garbage trucks (at least in chennai) spewing thick clouds of smoke are the ones that have to be taken off the roads first.

rightly said!

I think goverment should ban commerical vehcile more than 10 years old,which would mostly clear polluting trucks or must ask them to upgrade the engine with the current compliant.

Does this rule apply only to new cars ? What about cars from other non-metros that get re-registered in a metro ?

Seen many Bangalore bound APSRTC VOLVO and outbound KSRTC Volvo busses with poor engine maintenance spew very dark smoke, end up in following them in the Old Medras Road cable bridge :-(. So it has nothing to do with 15 year old vehicles. I have seen many private buses ( more than 15 years old) but engine is in very good condition but very less smoke.

IIRC, on cases of re-registration, it will be seen whether on the date of first registration did the vehicle qualify in the metro. If yes it will be registered. But the window is only 10 years, nothing more.
