Emission Norms Implementation Timeline for Tractors in India | TractorGyan

    Emission Norms Implementation Timeline for Tractors in India | TractorGyan

13 Jan, 2023

The government of India started to set emission norms in 1999 and has been revisiting and altering them ever since, for the sake of the environment. As India is an agriculture-oriented country it is only evident that the emission norms are to be carefully regulated for the most significant transport segment of India.


Here’s the timeline from the beginning to plans for the upcoming years and what to expect.

1. 1999 Bharat TREM I

1999 was the year when Bharat TREM came into existence hence the name Bharat TREM I, these standards were based on the United States of America's 2/3rd requirements first-ever standards for agriculture vehicles came into existence and was regulated in 1999, stating basic emission norms for the tractors of India.

2. 2003 Bharat TREM II

Bharat TREM II came into existence in the year of 2003, more than 4 years after the previous year's norm was implemented. Since it was the second norm it was not as surprising as the first one.

3. 2005 Bharat TREM III

The 3rd phase of renewing emission norms immediately came into existence in the year 2005 in the month of October, which can be seen as a revolutionary step towards the betterment of the environment with regards to the early 2000s. The norms stated as per the 2005 Bharat TREM III impacted the Indian agriculture economy rather radically with the previous 2 years of previous norms being implemented.

4. 2011 Bharat TREM III A

This stage of Bharat TREM emission norms known as TREM III A is a subsequent set of norms implemented in the month of April 2010 to 2011 with 5+ years of previous norms regulation. TREM III A is an extended version of Bharat TREM III hence the name Bharat TREM III A was kept.

5. 2022 Bharat TREM IV

The current norms which are set to be implemented on the upcoming tractors that are to be manufactured from this year are termed Bharat TREM IV, this is going to affect the tractors of the >50 HP segment majorly and is likely the reason why a sudden hike of prices since the manufacturing of the new tractors has to be done all over again from the scratch to match up with the current norms. Bharat TREM IV has become effective since January 2023 and has been a good 12 years since the previous emission norm implementation.

6. 2024 Bharat TREM V

The next norm is supposed to be implemented in the year 2024, which is the next year named Bharat TREM V.  And there are a lot of eyes on it with anticipation and keen for surprises that it holds for the future of farming and India’s major economy segments, agriculture.

India is lagging behind

Emission regulations in foreign countries mainly in the US and Europe, have mainly gone hand in hand and progressed through a series of various stages. Whereas most of the other countries have already transitioned to the emission standards of either of the two previously mentioned countries. Although the emissions norms in the world’s 2 biggest markets- India and China have evidently lagged behind in terms of developments, with standards of US Tier 3 and Euro Stage III A respectively.


In conclusion one can see that from the history of ICRA, anything can happen in the emission norms updation, a lot can go right, and a lot of people may have to bare losses or enjoy gains. Some companies might have to change the whole manufacturing process, while some may enjoy the benefit of being environmentally friendly. But there’s one thing that never changed and that is the betterment of the environment.
