Indian Oil Corp (IOC), the nation's biggest oil firm, becomes the first company to begin the supply of BS-VI fuel in India. The company’s 28,000 petrol stations are now dispensing ultra-low sulphur fuel, two weeks before the April 1 deadline.

"We have successfully rolled out the supply of BS-VI grade fuel across the country," announced IOC’s Chairman, Sanjiv Singh. "All our 28,000 petrol stations across the country are dispensing BS-VI grade fuel for more than a week now," he added.

The Indian Government had set April 1 as the deadline for starting the supply of Euro-VI emission compliant fuels. With this announcement, India becomes one of the few countries that use petrol and diesel containing just 10 parts per million of sulphur.

Other fuel retailers such as Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HPCL) are also progressively supplying BS-VI grade fuel throughout their outlets.
