    A) BS-IV vehicles   

    B) BS-III vehicles

    C) diesel vehicles    

    D) petrol vehicles

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    The Supreme Court ruled that health of citizens was more important than commercial interests of auto makers as it banned the sale and registration of Bharat Stage (BS)-III emission norm-compliant vehicles from April 1. Bharat Stage or BS norms are standards for vehicular emissions. They lay down the permissible levels of pollutants that come out of the exhaust pipes of motor vehicles. The aim is to check air pollution and emissions that lead to global warming. India is set to enforce a new generation of vehicular pollution norms on April 1 called BS IV. Only BS IV compliant vehicles can be manufactured.
