New Delhi: Supply of ultra-clean Euro-VI grade petrol and diesel has begun in cities adjoining the national capital, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) said. While Delhi in April 2018 became the first city in the country to leapfrog from Euro-IV grade petrol and diesel to Euro-VI fuels, cities in the national capital region like Noida and Ghaziabad switched over to the cleaner fuel from Monday. Rest of the country will follow suit from April 2020.
“Oil companies keep up BS-VI (Euro-VI) promise! 12 NCR districts and city of Agra converted to BS-VI green fuels from today,” IOC said in a series of tweets. The oil industry on Monday switched over to supply of BS-VI grade transportation fuels in 12 contiguous districts of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, it said.
