The National Green Tribunal (NGT), the green court, has banned the sales and registration of the new two wheelers in new Delhi that do not comply with the Bharat Stage IV emission norms. The decision will come into force from April 1, 2016. While, the existing two-wheeler models that are launched till March 2016 are obligated to upgrade to BS-IV standards from April 1, 2017. This call is certainly a matter of worry for the bike manufacturers that recently introduced new BS-III compliant models, including Royal Enfield Himalayan, Bajaj V15 and new Suzuki Access 125.
