Although the authority of the Indian government to set vehicle emissions standards was codified in 1988, it was in 2003 that India implemented the Bharat standards, which parallel the Euro standards. India currently applies the equivalent of Euro 6/VI to new light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, and the equivalent of Euro 5/V for two- and three-wheeled vehicles. Previous Bharat standards were introduced earlier in select major cities. India has also adopted nationwide fuel efficiency standards for light-duty vehicles, as well as various policies at the state level to incentivize electric vehicle manufacturing and uptake.
