Default India might move directly from BS IV to BS VI

The Indian Government might move directly from the fourth to the sixth stage (BS IV to BS VI) as it seeks to find a solution to the problem of rising vehicular pollution.


While the oil industry has no reservations about skipping the BS V stage, the auto mobile lobby is opposed to such a move on the grounds that it will compromise safety standards & escalate costs.

It is laughable that the lobby which vehemently opposed more stringent safety norms is now opposed to stricter emission norms and is using passenger safety as an excuse.

While the costs involved in upgrading technology to meet better emission norms are apparent, I do not understand how/why safety becomes an issue?

Can knowledgeable BHP-ians throw some light on this?
