Refiners’ investment

NEW DELHI: Indian refiners need to invest INR 300 billion ($4.5 billion) to produce Euro VI complaint fuel, Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Wednesday. India has advanced the date for country-wide implementation of Euro VI compliant fuels by four years to April 1, 2020, in an effort to curb pollution. Pollution levels in Indian cities have often been compared to China’s Beijing. A World Health Organisation study in 2014 said India’s capital city New Delhi had the worst air quality out of the 1,600 cities surveyed worldwide. — Reuters
