From April 1, automakers in India will be allowed to sell only BS-IV compliant vehicles. The BS (Bharat Stage) standards are based on European regulations and was first introduced in 2000. BS-IV for 13 metro cities was introduced in April 2010. However, it took seven years to implement it nationwide across the vehicle segments. Many car and two-wheelers makers have already updated their models to the BS-IV standard and some of them are currently offering massive discounts on the BS-III models to clear their inventories. Here, we list all the scooters in India that have been updated to BS-IV standard.
