Under the Bharat Stage VI and V standards, India will achieve significant reductions of NOx and PM from agricultural tractors and construction equipment.

India has a substantial opportunity to improve HDV fuel efficiency levels. Per-vehicle fuel consumption reductions between roughly 20% and 35% are possible with technologies that are expected to be available in India over the next 10 years.

This position brief makes specific recommendations regarding the adoption of RDE testing in India. The recommendations are geared towards ensuring that implementation of an Indian RDE program would narrow the gap between laboratory and on-road emissions performance of vehicles that should meet Bharat Stage (BS) VI emissions standards.
