In a bid to deal with the critical pollution situation in the national capital, the Ministry of Petroleum has brought forward the date for the rollout of BS-VI fuel for Delhi to April 1, 2018, instead of the original deadline of April 1, 2020.

For the rest of the country, the earlier deadline would remain until April 2020.
