Castrol India Limited, the leading automotive and industrial lubricant manufacturing company in the country, announced that it is ready for India’s Bharat Stage VI (BS VI) regulation which kicks in on 1 April 2020.
The company said it has a range of lubricant products across categories that offer “industry-first” features that can take India one step closer to a low-carbon future.
Leveraging the company’s access to global R&D and technology, including its experience from the Euro 6 standards implemented in Europe a few years ago, Castrol said it is now ready with lubricants that complement the Government of India’s mission towards cleaner and greener mobility.
“Castrol’s readiness underpins its strong partnership with the overall growth of the automotive industry,” the company said in a statement.
Several Castrol power brands are part of its BS VI ready portfolio including two-wheeler, passenger car and commercial vehicle engine oils which promise to continue offering enhanced quality and performance to customers.
Commenting on this landmark announcement, Kedar Apte, vice president – Marketing, Castrol India Limited, said, “I am delighted to announce Castrol India’s BS VI readiness across our product range.”
“This range of BS VI ready lubricants is another first for Castrol India which complements low emission BS VI automotive engines and is a step forward in terms of liquid engineering,” added Castrol India’s Technology Head Rajesh Madathingal.
Castrol is also committed to lead the awareness and education among various stakeholders on the changing automotive technology. Mechanic training related to this key transition are underway, with a plan to reach 2,50,000 mechanics nationally to gear up for this change.
