Emission Norms BS V & BS VI Implementation Dates Pre-Poned

The government on Saturday said that it has decided to advance the dates for implementation of the roll out of higher level Bharat Stage (BS) V & VI norms for the four-wheelers by three years.

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways drafted a notification to roll out the BS-V and BS VI norms from April 1, 2019 & April 1, 2021 respectively.

As per the roadmap earlier lay down by the Auto Fuel Policy, BS-V norms were to be implemented from April 1, 2022 & BS-VI from April 1, 2024.

The Ministry’s decision does not mean that it will skip BS-V and go in for BS-VI standards directly. At one stage, there had been contemplation over skipping the BS-V stage for faster redressal of the pollution issues. But many automotive bodies, including SIAM, had opposed the skipping of the BS-V norms. The norms aim at the substantial reduction in NOx/4C levels.

The Ministry’s statement attributed the advancement of implementation dates to Nitin Gadkari’s “keenness” that the road transport sector must take the lead role in dropping the harmful effects of emissions on environment and climate change. This reveals a firm commitment to play a chief role in reducing vehicular emissions.

The Ministry said draft norms for two & three-wheeler categories will be notified shortly with advanced timelines similar to the four wheeler category.

Currently, nearly 35 cities in India follow the BS-IV norms with the rest adhering to the BS-III standards.

Different Ministries have been debating over the timeline for the introduction of the BS-V and VI emission standards.

Many countries in the West have already put a Euro-VI standard in place. BS-VI is its equivalent. As things stand, India is 5 years behind the emission standards already adopted by European countries.

According to the Centre’s expert committee, the automobile industry would require investments worth Rs 50,000 Crore for transitioning from BS-IV to BS-V. And an amount of Rs 60,000 Crore will be essential to produce BSIV/BSV diesel from refineries.

This Implementation would definitely lead to rise in price in new vehicle market and thus it would be difficult for people to own the vehicle. But being the leader in the used vehicle industry, Shriram Automall India Limited will come to the rescue of such people who can invest their resources in commercial vehicles and used cars in India

Important Driving Tips Beginners Should Know



Driving is very easy but you have to take a lot of precautions in order to learn to drive safe. Few important tips to help you learn driving easily and safely:

Drive Under the Guidance: The first and foremost tip for every learner is to always drive under somebody’s guidance before you get familiar to all controls. The person who is teaching you must have some experience in training or instructing others for this purpose. It is recommended to learn driving from a recognized driving school. The teacher will help you know the dos and don’ts of the driving process. You can always pick up some valuable lessons from them and add it to your skills profile.

Adjust the Driver’s Seat: Every amateur driver must know how to adjust the seat for a proper & comfortable position and adjust the rear view mirrors to properly manage control over the car. Always sit upright with your back well supported by the seat to prevent tiredness or injuries. Even pro drivers must adjust the seat properly to be fully in control over the car.

Excel the Basics: One of the most important car driving tips for beginners, always try to excel in the car driving basics to easily handle the car in future as well. The speed is not that necessary as much excelling in basic instruction and plans is. Learn how to slow down, apply brake in emergency, and most notably how to get out from traffic.

Have a Calm and Composed Mind: It is the first thing to be learnt, always remember a calm mind saves and works more efficiently under pressure and critical situations than a chaotic one. Try to drive without panicking and get out of the traffic around you. It will help in preventing any kind of mishaps in future and add up as a skill in your driving resume.

Do not use Mobile Phones: The most important driving tip for learners, ‘do not use mobile phones while driving’. Mobile phones disturb your concentration and engage your attention and hands. It is highly advised not to take calls or revert to messages, keep your eyes on the road and handle the steering wheel properly.

Learn When to Shift Gears: It is one thing that you learn only with the time and is included in the later or final car driving tips for the beginners.

5 Steps Purchasing a Pre-Owned Tractor

Purchasing a pre-owned tractor makes sense as you can save a lot money or might get one in your limited resource, depending upon your situation and needs. Well-maintained used tractors provide close-to-new situation at a lesser cost for those looking to add to their fleet or make their very first equipment purchase.

Purchasing pre-owned is easy to justify, not only for yourself, but also for your business/financial partner. The difficult part of the decision is actually selecting the right pre-owned equipment for your situation. Before purchasing a used tractor, consider the following:


1) Owning a Tractor and Car is not a Same Thing

While you decide to own a tractor, you tend to come across many factors in between the process. While purchasing a used tractor is totally different from purchasing a car or any two wheelers as tractors involve working on terrains of carrying off loads.

2) Identify The Needs

A tractor has many types and before you do anything else, it’s a good idea to narrow down the category that best suits your specific needs. The most common types of tractors include:

•    Compact Utility Tractors – These are smaller tractors designed to be used for many everyday landscaping and grounds maintenance applications.

•    Utility Tractors – Versatile in capability, general-use utility tractors are often used for grounds maintenance, wagon pulling, and even hay production.

•    Row Crop Tractors – These tractors are more specialized in the tasks they are designed to perform. They are well-suited to work well with a range of field-use implements and applications.

•    Articulated 4WD Tractors –Generally used in grain operations to handle tillage and seeding type work. Also often used for land leveling and dirt transportation.

3) Price is Important

The most important factor in any major purchase is the price of the asset. Quality used tractors are available even for the lowest budgets. If you have a pre-decided price you can easily make a decision about purchasing the used tractor.


4) Do Your Research

Once you’ve narrowed down your list to various used tractor models that would be perfect according to your needs and fits your budget, it’s now time to research about it. Look for all the particulars of the model, its capabilities, history and usage. You can use internet for this step or take the help of user manuals.

5) Finally Close the Deal

After deciding on a particular tractor, check for the transaction and finalise the deal. Ensure that the spare parts are available in future as well. Wrapping up the deal is typically quite straightforward once you’ve selected just the right tractor for your needs—most experienced sellers will be able to guide you through the process of closing the deal.

Shriram Automall which is the leader of the used vehicle and equipment industry has a wide range of second hand tractors and other used commercial vehicles which can be acquired easily through SAMIL’s physical and online bidding platforms.

It's the extension of the Indian car buyer's fondness for novelty, which resulted in the creation of sub-segments over the past decade including the 'entry-level sedan' and the various derivatives of compact cars and hatchbacks.

The key trigger for vehicle manufactures for shrinking the size of cars has been the government’s incentive to make smaller cars.

Change the Flat Tire: There are a lot of chances of coming across a flat tire.  Even greater than most of the mechanical issues but what’s worse than getting a flat tire is waiting on the help of someone to come and change it for you. So it’s better to learn changing tire by yourself to save your time and moreover you won’t have to depend on someone.

Change the worn out wipers: Wiper blades must be changed every six months. Check for cracks frequently, and remember to clean the dirty wiper blades with a wet paper towel.

Regular Maintenance: It is important to get yourself familiarized with the cars user manual booklet. Whether you buy used or new you should always research beforehand to educate yourself about certain important things. For Instance-:

o    Oil change: Every 3000 miles with oil filter
o    Under the hood: Check as frequently as possible. Once a week or in every 2 weeks.
o    Tire rotation: Rotate the tires every 6,000 miles following the manufacturers’ rotation suggestion. If you have a matching spare, include it too in the rotation pattern so when it is time for change, it will run smooth and last long.

Fuel: Regular fuel is satisfactory for most subcompact cars and SUV’s but for the luxury vehicles, like Cadillac, Mercedes, Audi premium fuel is always recommended. The heavier the load inside of the car, the more power the engine will need to move the car. Weight indeed affects your fuel too. If you are traveling with lots of people or toting around luggage, expect your fuel to run out a little sooner. Nonetheless, having your fuel limit at the half or above will allow your car to run a bit smoother.

Don’t drive so close that you have to slam on your breaks every other second also texting while driving also causes sudden brake slam so it’s better to keep your phone out of your hands).

The Sonalika Group, the number three player in the Indian tractor market, is taking some steps to reinforce its position as well as expand its allied businesses. Sonalika International Tractors Ltd launched two new tractors, namely GardenTrac 26 and Rx 30 Baagbaan Super tractors during world famous Dussehra fair at Kullu. The tractors are designed keeping in mind about the needs for apple orchards in Kullu valley and row crops.

Both the tractors are technically advanced 26HP and 30HP orchard tractors that feature extremely powerful engine, power steering, and a hydraulic system with automatic depth and draft control (ADDC) for ease of operation. These highly fuel efficient tractors can easily work on strenuous operations for long hours. These tractors are light and compact with small turning radius and come in four-wheel drive which provides better traction for operation across terrains. Every component of the tractor is engineered to operate without breakdown or stress in all heavy duty operations.
