Telangana state to implement BS IV norms from April 1, 2016
In a bid to reduce vehicle related pollution, the Telangana state has taken a decision to implement BS IV norms from April 1, 2016. As per the decision, all new vehicles manufactured in 2016 should have a BS IV compliant engine. After April 1, no new vehicle with BS III engine will be registered by local RTOs across the state. Only the registration of old vehicles with BS III engines manufactured before August 2015 will be accepted during resale.
"In 2015, the ministry of road transport had issued an order stating that from April 1, 2016, only BS IV vehicles should be registered. The order will be implemented after holding a meeting with dealers on March 25,'' said the transport commissioner, Sandeep Sultania.
Since the past one year, just BS IV compliant vehicles were being registered in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation area. However, from April 1, all districts in the state will register only BS IV compliant new vehicles.
The emission norms along with the timeline for their implementation are decided by the Union government. The directive to implement BS IV norms was issued to the Telanga government last year and the dealers were also informed about the same.
