Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has issued notification no GSR 547(E)
dated August 1, 2019, exempting the armoured and other specialised vehicles of
Indian armed forces and paramilitary forces from the new stringent vehicular
emission norms (BS-VI) which are set to take effect from April 1, 2020. The
Ministry has also granted exemption to these vehicles from BS-IV compliance.
exemption has been granted because these vehicles operate in remote and
inhospitable terrains with most challenging operational and environmental
conditions. Due to security challenges and requirements of specialised
operations, the development of suitable engine compliant with the above norms
would require considerable time. Further, it is difficult to maintain ideal
transportation and storage conditions of fuel in these conditions.
the Government, vide G.S.R. 485(E) dated 19.05.2017, had exempted motor
vehicles used for Government purposes relating to the defence of the country
from BS- IV norms and, vide G.S.R. 871(E) dated 13.09.2018, had exempted
special purpose vehicles (armoured and other specialised vehicles) used for
operational purposes for maintenance of law and order and internal security
from BS-IV norms, for a period up to 31st December, 2019.
manufacturers like Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, Force Motors, among others
supplies specialised vehicles to the defence forces.
