Tata Motors has updated its passenger vehicles lineup in order to obey the stricter emission rules. Other automakers such as Maruti Suzuki India and Mahindra & Mahindra are also in the process of upgrading their lineup before the given deadline of April 1. The Indian automobile industry is working to elevate its product portfolios to meet the second phase of Bharat Stage (BS) 6. This norm is equivalent to Euro6 emission rules.

To follow these rules, auto companies are investing to put additional equipment in the power train of their vehicles. And due to this, the prices of four-wheelers are expected to rise in upcoming times. The second phase of BS6 emission norms will be implemented from April 1.

Can't confirm any timeline on the same," Chandra was quoted in a PTI report.
