    EMISSIONS & CONSERVATION T-1 Meeting on faster transition to BSVI emission norms with Secretary, MoHI

    On directions from the Principal Secretary to the Honble Prime Minister of India, a meeting to discuss the roadmap for faster transition to BSVI emission norms was held 3

    rd June 2015 at DHI, New Delhi

    under the Chairmanship Shri R S Katoch, Secretary, Ministry of Heavy Industry & Public Enterprise. SIAM suggested a step wise approach of first moving to BS V and then to BS VI which is essential from the safety perspective of vehicles. SIAM highlighted that movement from BS IV to BS V addresses the issue of PM 2.5 in passenger cars and achieves 90% reduction in PM 2.5 and also 40% in NOx. For commercial vehicles, movement from BS III to BS IV itself gives 80% PM reduction and NOx reduction of 30%. BSIV to BSV further achieves 43% NOx reduction. Members from automobile industry and technology providers including Bosch & Delphi also iterated that direct implementation of BSVI without proper step validation of the technologies in real life Indian usage conditions could lead to various critical safety hazards including self-acceleration of vehicles, engine damage, DPF damage leading to fire hazard and more. Due to same reason nowhere in the world the industry has moved straight from BS IV to BS VI. Technology providers further informed the panel that Euro VI is still in an evolving stage in Europe. Moving from one emission stage to the next stage needs a period of 4 years, out of which at least 2 years are necessary for validation of the new technology under real life running. Testing and validation of BS VI technologies suited for Indian conditions will not be possible by the proposed 2020 timeframe. Mr R C Bhargava, Chairman, MSIL suggested that all major factors causing pollution in Delhi should be identified. Also that the vehicle has to operate as a complete system and has to comply to mandatory Safety, Emission as well as Fuel Efficiency standards, which are all closely interlinked in the vehicle system. Therefore, the industry has to look at the engineering of the entire vehicle systems and none of these systems can be looked at in isolation. Industry shared their readiness to implement BSV & BSVI one year in advance from the dates proposed in the Auto Fuel Policy, i.e. by 2019 and 2023 respectively. Secretary, DHI directed SIAM and technology providers to send their formal representations to DHI highlighting the limitations and safety concerns that may arise due to skipping of BSV. The same was duly submitted to the Ministry. For further details contact Mr Hardik Makhija (hardik@siam.in)

    Version.

The issue of change of Type due to change in vehicle category (e.g. from M1 to N1 or M2 to N2 or M2 to M3, etc) due to change in GVW and / or change in seating capacity was discussed. The clause and examples given in EU WVTA directive were reviewed. It was also observed that SIAM proposal for N1, N2, N3, M2, M3 categories is also more or less on same lines.
