Deferment of Emission Norms

August 2020

MoRTH favourably considered ICEMA’s request to defer the implementation of the next level emission norms, in view of the various challenges triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. On September 30, 2020, MoRTH released the final notification which included a deferment of implementation of CEV Stage-IV Emission Norms from Oct 1, 2020 to April 1, 2021. Further, MoRTH also incorporated the changed nomenclature of CEV Stage-IV/V emission norms in place of BS (CEV/TREM) -IV/V, as proposed by ICEMA. This will help overcome the anticipated registration issues arising due to incorrect interpretation of CEV emission norms with that of the commercial vehicles.
