Question raised in Lok Sabha on Vehicle Emission Standards, 06/12/2016. ARAI is one of the Test Agencies, notified under Rule 126 of Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, for Type Approval Certification of vehicles as per the notified rules, standards and procedures.

The industrial sector is a significant contributor of stack emissions in India, from localised sources such as brick kilns and diesel generator sets, to large centralised facilities such as coal fired thermal power plants and oil refineries.

On July 4, 2014, India finalized the fourth stage of emission standards for motorized two-wheeled vehicles. The Bharat Stage (BS) IV standards will go into effect for type approval of new motorcycle models in April 2016, and for all motorcycle models in April 2017.

A comprehensive survey, setting India’s policy options in the context of international experience and assessing technology costs versus health and economic benefits under several scenarios.

Compliance and enforcement programs aim to ensure that, even after a period of use, vehicle emissions of criteria pollutants (primarily particulates, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide) do not exceed the original certification standards.

The 2013 Auto Fuel Policy Committee is charged with establishing a roadmap for vehicle emission and fuel quality standards in India through 2025.

In January 2013, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG) created an expert committee on “Auto Fuel Vision and Policy—2025”, charged with establishing a roadmap for fuel quality and vehicle emission standards through 2025.

This study presents a review of available literature in the urban auto-rickshaw sector in India. It focuses on current state of the sector, summarize the key issues, and highlight the gaps in current literature.

There are currently around 90 cities that India's Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) identified as critically polluted. Particulate matter (PM), especially fine particulate matter (PM2.5), dominates the concern. Other air pollutants such as NO2, ozone (O3), and air toxics are also problematic.
