The lowest polluting petrol and diesel will start in India on 1 April. Euro 6 standard fuel will now be used in the country. Within just three years, India has achieved this huge achievement. Earlier, Euro 4 standard diesel and petrol were used. Due to this, India’s count will now be included in those selected cities where such petrol and diesel are used. No country with a large economy around the world has taken such a step so far.
With the introduction of Euro 6 in India from April 1, 2020, people will get a lot of relief from the pollution arising out of vehicles. In many cities including Delhi, the delivery of vehicles is at alarming levels. Governments also suggest a number of measures to reduce pollution, but with the increasing population, the level of pollution is constantly increasing due to the increase in trains. In such a situation, the introduction of Euro 6 petrol and diesel will significantly reduce pollution levels.
Yerman Sanjeev Singh of Wawli Indian Oil Corporation, which accounts for about 50 per cent of the sales of petrol and diesel in India, said that by the end of 2019, refineries had started producing BS6 standard fuel. As a result, oil companies are now trying to fully implement Euro 6 fuel. Now petrol pumps will use BS6 standard fuel. The use of Euro 3 fuel was first introduced in India during the year 2010, but now India is going to implement Euro 6.
