India today made a formal launch of BS-IV grade fuel across the country to keep carbon emission in check and set a target of ushering in BS-VI fuel by April 2020.
The launch came days after the Supreme Court banned sale and registration of BS-III vehicles from April 1.
Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan formally launched the BS-IV grade transportation fuel here on the occasion of Utkal Diwas, the state foundation day, here.
Pradhan symbolically commenced sale of the eco-friendly and low-emission fuel from 12 different locations across the country through live video links. The cities are Varanasi, Vijayawada, Durgapur, Gorakhpur, Imphal, Bhopal, Ranchi, Madurai, Nagpur, Patna, Guwahati and Shillong.
