The automotive industry is one of the industries that have visibility suffered a strong demand for higher environmental performance. This industry have enjoyed years as the main source of employment and economic growth, today it is being pointed out as one of the major contributors to air pollution in urban centers. Indeed the benefits of automobile provide the means of gaining access to life's necessities and employment and a source of pleasure. However, despite these benefits there are environmental burdens as well: local air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, road congestion, noise, mortality and morbidity from accidents and less open space to roads. Thus companies in the sector have been trying different strategies to overcome these challengesEvaluation of Emission development for commercial vehicles had always been great challenge to continuously migrate from one level of emission norm to other maintaining the business continuity. With every migration its necessary to cross the technological barriers one such challenge had been during the migration from BSII to BSIII the option available had been to go for CRS engines with an incremental cost of approximately one lakh rupee per engine compared to conventional IL engines this would have eventually impacted the customer base for reasons of high cost and high maintenance. The goal has been set to achieve this migration without CRS technology by optimization of combustion and developing advance Catcon technology to achieve BSIII levels. This paper illustrates the development of an integrated muffler achieving emission targets and also gives the advantage of space and cost. Some of India specific challenges are customer awareness, cost of the vehicle, urbanization, need for a synchronized transportation system and vehicle retirement. The research and work has led to developing world's first mechanical inline pump engine with customized exhaust and after treatment meeting BSIII emission norms with significant cost advantage compared to CRS engine
