The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) published a consultation paper on proposed fuel economy labelling and standards for the country, initially focusing on cars. The paper also invited feedback from the public, which was followed by a public consultation held in New Delhi. Parisar submitted its list of concerns and recommendations about the proposed standards. These include some procedural concerns (such as inadequate public consultations and time to respond), structural concerns (such as lack of disincentive to increasing vehicle weights) and substantial concerns (such as the current standards being too weak). Other groups attending the public consultation highlighted similar problems with the consultation paper.
