"The amendment also attempts to avoid confusion between the emission norms of other motor vehicles which has BS as norms and those for agricultural machinery, construction equipment vehicles and such other equipment," it said.

The amendment includes separate emission norms for agricultural machinery (agricultural tractors, power tillers and combined harvesters) and construction equipment vehicles. There is also change in the nomenclature of emission norms from Bharat Stage (CEV/TREM) 4 and Bharat Stage (CEV/TREM)V to TREM Stage-4 and TREM Stage-V for agricultural tractors and other equipment.
