Government proposes implementation rules for the first-ever fuel consumption norms for passenger cars - CSE finds gaping holes in them

  • While public attention is diverted towards Bharat Stage IV emissions norms becoming the nation-wide standard from April 1 this year, the new compliance rules for fuel consumption norms for cars is escaping public scrutiny. 

Is India prepared to prevent manufacturing defects and frauds in vehicles that compromise their emissions performance on roads?

  • The current PUC norms are not only too lenient to fail a vehicle, they cannot test tiny particles and NOx from in-use vehicles. Lax norms and poor enforcement make the PUC programme very ineffective. This needs an overhaul.
