The Euro-VI costs about Rs 50 more to produce but as of now it will be made available at the same price as the normal petrol/diesel.
Ultra-clean Euro-VI grade fuel will be available in Delhi from today onwards. Delhi is the first city in India to get the Euro VI grade fuel. With this authorities hope to clean the air of the national capital.
As per reports, other major cities including Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune and even NCR regions of Delhi like Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram and Faridabad will switch to the Euro-VI standard from next year. In other areas of the country, the cleaner fuel will be available from April 2020.
The Euro-VI costs about Rs 50 more to produce but as of now, it will be made available at the same price as the normal petrol/diesel. Euro-VI grade fuel said to contain 10 parts per million (ppm) of sulphur as against 50 ppm in Euro-IV fuels as a result, it claims to result in 10-20 percent less particulate emission even in older grade engines.
The decision to roll out the new fuel norms in Delhi is attributed to rising pollution levels in the national capital which sees life-threatening smogs every winter.
