      Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) has launched voluntary labeling program in India for disclosing vehicle mileage for vehicles launched in India. The mileage disclosures will have to be completed by March 31. Initially the disclosure will be limited to two-wheelers and passenger vehicle manufacturers in India. Commercial vehicles have been kept out of this program for now as customers of this segment are extremely versatile in determining the mileage of the buses and trucks that they purchase.

      The aim of labeling program is to ensure that the customer does not have to rely on word-of-mouth testimonials in the market to assess the mileage of any model from any brand. The mileage will be determined by three government approved agencies viz. Automotive Research Association of India at Pune, Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (VRDE) at Ahmednagar and International Centre of Automotive Technology (ICAT) located at Manesar.
