Post From April, cars may come with fuel economy rating

Carmakers from April 1 may have to affix a label mentioning the fuel economy star rating which will help buyers choose vehicles on the basis of efficiency benchmark.
Also, the government plans to make it mandatory for manufacturers and importers of cars to comply with average fuel consumption standards from April 1, 2017 in addition to display of fuel economy star rating (FESR).
“Every manufacturer or importer of a vehicle...manufactured or imported on or after April 1, 2016 shall affix on the vehicle a FESR label,” a draft notification from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has said.
Once the draft rules are notified, every dealer will have to prominently display the star rating, it said.
“Every dealer dealing in a vehicle ...shall prominently display at the point of sale, the star rating for the different fuel economy levels” calculated as per specifications, it said.
