So preventive measure to should be implemented as early as possible.
Comparing to other countries we have very high level of pollution and we as less caring about nature, so the preventive step should be first here rather than foreign countries.
You are right, I totally agree with you. But what I intent to say is different, whatever time frame the government has in bringing the BS-VI technology by 2020, before doing that, if they move to BS-V in a year or 2 prior to launching of BS-VI, it gives auto manufacturers a chance to rectify issues in the vehicles (apart from R&D department, there are no better testers than public). Our driving cycle and environment is different when compared to European countries and it is not a cut paste job for the R & D Department. They need to test a lot but still the things will go wrong. The only thing different between BS-V and BS-VI Diesel engine is the blue tank, that contains AUS 32 (ammonia) that breaks down NOX into N2 and H2o.
Adding a small thing, has many sensors and electronics. Everything needs to be double checked to ensure reliability of the engines.
So I think skipping BS-V is not at all a good Idea.
