The government of India approved the National Policy on Biofuels on December 24, 2009. The aim of the policy was to supplement transport fuels with an “indicative target to replace 20% of petroleum fuel consumption with biofuels (gasoline with bio-ethanol and diesel with bio-diesel) by 2017”. Today at the brink of 2014, halfway to target the deadline, it is appropriate to assess the relevance and the performance of the policy, say Asit K. Biswas and Nishtha Manocha.
