At an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by the road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari, and attended by oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan, heavy industries minister Anant Geete and environment minister Prakash Javadekar, a decision to leapfrog to BS VI emission standard was taken if the industry sources are to be believed. Sources claimed that the decision to jump to BS VI emission standards would effectively mean skipping the BS V standards. Drawing attention towards the deadline set by the earlier government, sources also claimed that the automakers who until now have been producing Euro VI compliant vehicles for export, will have to look at introducing them in the domestic market. As of current, BS IV norms are followed in parts of India and by April 01, 2017, BS IV norms will be enforced pan-India.
