      Vehicle makers must share noise, emission data from April 2017.



      n a recent notification, the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has amended Form 22 under the Central Motor Vehicles Act, through which manufactures provide the initial certification of compliance with pollution standards, safety standards of component quality and road-worthiness certificate for all vehicles.

      The government said from April 1, 2017, the vehicle manufacturers will have to provide emission details for each vehicle in the revised Form 22.

      “The Form will include the brand, chassis number, engine number and emission norms… of the vehicle and specify the levels of each pollutant like carbon monoxide, hydro carbon, non-methane HC, NOx, HC + NOx, PM etc for petrol and diesel vehicles and also sound level for horn and pass-by noise values,” the notification said.

      sparkls; Will it not be true that then after markets horns may be illegal. I can see the roadside copper using it as a good excuse for some 'baksheesh'. Remember the OE horns seldom last more than four years of normal use (and abuse). Even otherwise some people like to change them, however I am quite upset by Mobikes sounding like cars etc.

      When every major automobile company faced decline in their sales due to demonetisation, M&M seems biggest hit since majority of their products cater to rural areas where most people transact in cash. In the contrary, another major Indian automobile company Tata Motors shifts up and come onto 3rd position.

      Maruti's Gypsy on its way out; Tata Safari to be new Army vehicle

      Maruti's Gypsy on its way out; Tata Safari to be new Army vehicle - ET Auto


      NEW DELHI: The Army will replace its iconic Maruti Gypsy fleet with a new range of SUVs, having selected the Tata Safari Storme for an initial order of close to 3,200 vehicles, which could increase 10-fold in the coming years.

      While an official announcement is yet to be made, ET has learnt that Tata Motors beat off the Mahindra Group, which fielded its Scorpio SUV for the competition that kicked off in 2013.

      Both locally developed SUVs passed rigorous technical trials by the army, which tested the vehicles in all conditions – from high-altitude, snow-bound regions to deserts and marshy land.

      However, the Tata Group appears to have presented a better financial deal to the army, which has sought to replace its fleet of Gypsy vehicles that are used extensively at the battalion level to transport troops and officers.

      “The initial order is for 3,198 new SUVs but the total number is likely to go much beyond that. The army prefers a single model across its units and formations as it is easier on logistics,” an official involved in the process told ET.

      While the Gypsy has been an army favourite for its ability to navigate tough terrain, the need was felt for a new SUV with additional safety features and more power that runs on diesel, a fuel that’s more readily available, given its large fleet of trucks and heavy-duty vehicles.

      Once signed, this will be the second major order for Tata Motors this year, having bagged a Rs 1,300 crore deal in January to supply high-mobility military trucks for the army. The 6x6 high-mobility vehicles can be used for various purposes – from transporting men and material to being the platform for multi-barrel rocket launchers and surface-to-air missile systems.

      I will personally wait for the GST rollout, esp if I am in a high tax state.
