The government has introduced blending of ethanol into gasoline under the Ethanol Blended Petrol (EBP) program with multiple objectives including reducing import dependency, foreign exchange savings, boosting domestic agriculture sector and associated environmental benefits .

The target of 10% ethanol blending set in the “India Ethanol Blending Roadmap 2020-25” for ESY 2021-22 has already been achieved and the Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies (WTO) have started to sell E20 gasoline (blended with 20% ethanol) across the country. Additionally, the National Biofuels Policy – 2018 aims for a 20% blend of ethanol into gasoline by Ethanol Supply Year (ESY) 2025-26.
