BS-VI fuel now available in Delhi

The environment minister has reportedly informed the Rajya Sabha that BS-VI fuel has been introduced in Delhi. He was replying to a question raised during the session. 

In November 2017, the government had announced that BS-VI fuels would be available in Delhi from April 1, 2018. It was reported that around 397 fuel pumps in the national capital had started selling BS-VI grade petrol and diesel from March 2018. BS-VI grade fuel is expected to be available in the rest of India by April 1, 2020. Sale of BS-VI compliant vehicles will also commence from next year.

The minister also said that PM-10 levels in the national capital had come down as most of the heavy traffic was being diverted around the city.
