Default Maruti Ertiga Tour M (Taxi) with 1.5L Diesel silently launched

Maruti Suzuki has silently launched the Ertiga 1.5L Diesel for taxi market. The Tour M is now available with Petrol, CNG and Diesel engine options. Like the petrol and petrol-CNG engine variants, the diesel engine variant is based on the VXI trim of the Ertiga.

My question is if Maruti is going to stop producing the 1.5 Diesel in a few months, then why introduce it in the tour variant? Or is it just to recover the development cost of the engine as much as possible.

They've been on the road in Bangalore for a while. I saw a yellow board white Ertiga (new shape) at my workplace a month ago.

It is confirmed that Maruti is working on a BS6 version of the 1.5L diesel. They may or may not meet the April 2020 deadline, but the BS6 version is coming for sure. More details in this post (Maruti 1.5L Diesel : Official Review (Ciaz, Ertiga)).

Could it be possible that BS6 will be extended to meet the timeline for Maruti to get it's engine ready? Considering the current slump in the auto industry, lobbyists would have a strong case for themselves.

Question: why buy a tour edition (esp diesel variant which is mentioned as the VDI variant comparable) when the regular VDI variant is available at almost the same price?

Do they block VDI variant from being registered as a taxi?
