The Bharat Stage III norms, were notified by Government of India on recommendation by Dr R.A. Mashelkar committee for the control of pollution in the country and are applicable across all states.
Bajaj Auto achieved this much before the stated deadline of April 1st, 2010. Bajaj’s patented technologies such as DTS-Si and the DTS-i have always been at the forefront of eco-friendliness due to their efficiency and much lowered emissions.
The company has also developed three wheelers which use alternate fuels such as CNG and LPG.
Bajaj Auto entered into Wind Power in January 2000 and invested approximately Rs. 300 crores over the next 3 years.
