Govt asks auto makers to give emission details of vehicles
From April 1, 2017, all automobile manufacturers will have to give a detailed declaration about emission levels of each motor vehicle.

"From April 1, 2017, the vehicle manufacturers will have to provide emission details for each vehicle," the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement.

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has amended Form 22 under the Central Motor Vehicles Act, 1989, through which manufacturers provide the initial certificate of compliance with pollution standards, safety standards of components quality and road worthiness certificate for all vehicles.

In the case of E-rickshaws and E-carts, this Form will be issued with the signature of an authorised signatory of registered E-rickshaw or E-cart association, the statement added.

Earlier, Form 22 only certified that the vehicle in question complied with the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act and rules there under, including the relevant emission norms Bharat Stage I/II/III etc.

"The Form will include the brand, chassis number, engine number (motor number, in case of battery operated vehicles) and emission norms Bharat Stage - IV / VI /Bharat (Trem) Stage-III/III etc of the vehicle and specify the levels of each pollutant like carbon monoxide, hydro carbon, non-methane HC, NOx, HC + NOx, PM etc for petrol and diesel vehicles and also sound level for horn and pass by noise values," the statement said.

The amended rules will apply to all vehicles run on petrol, CNG, LPG, electric, diesel and hybrid, including agricultural and construction vehicles, as well as e-rickshaws and e-carts.

Form 22 will be issued with the signature of the manufacturer.

In a bid to curb vehicular pollution, the government in January this year decided to implement stricter emission norms of Bharat Stage (BS) VI from April 1, 2020 by skipping BS-V altogether.

At present, BS IV norms are followed in parts of India and by April 1, 2017, the whole of the country is scheduled to be covered under it.

The decision to leapfrog to BS-VI was taken at an inter- ministerial meeting in January.
