The company will ensure that all its two and three-wheelers manufactured from January 2017 meet the stringent norms BS IV norms. Bajaj is probably the first automobile company to completely meet BS IV norms well before the deadline of 1st April 2017. The Central Pollution Control Board had earlier confirmed that BS III compliant vehicles could not be sold or registered anywhere in the country from April 1, 2017. However, some automobile companies have requested that this deadline be extended. "Bajaj Auto as a responsible corporate has complied with this directive and had already commenced manufacturing of BS IV complaint vehicles from October 2016. Moreover, with effect from Jan 2017 all products from all our three plants are BS IV compliant," said MD Bajaj Auto, Rajiv Bajaj.
