Ban on 10 Year Old Diesel and 15 Year Old Petrol Cars in Delhi NCR as per NGT and Supreme Court Order

Do you have 10 Year Old Diesel or 15 Year Old Petrol Car. Due to recent NGT Order along with Supreme Court Order - Ban Imposed on Driving and De Registration of Old Cars

 

Ban on 10 Year Old Diesel, 15 Year Old Petrol Cars

To Counter against Increasing Pollution, NGT - National Green Tribunal has suggested set of Measures 

A) » Complete Ban on Plying Petrol Cars Manufactured more than 15 Years Old in Delhi / NCR

B) » Ban on Plying Diesel Vehicles Manufactured 10 Years Ago in Delhi / NCR 

C) » No Extension of Fitness Certificate of 15 Year Old Cars - Petrol or CNG or Diesel

D) » Cancellation of Registration / De-Registration of 15 year Old Diesel Cars

Supreme Court has also ordered

A) » Additional 1% Green Cess on High Capacity Diesel Cars with Engine > 2000 cc

Even State - Delhi State Government has also imposed that

A) » CNG can not be fitted in BS-1, BS-2 Cars due to Counterfeit Kits been sold and stringent in measures that Certified CNG Kits with proper approval should only be endorsed in RTO

Basis NGT Recommendation and Supreme Court Oder - if any of these 10 Year Old Diesel vehicles or 15 Year Old Vehicles (irrespective of Fuel) are found plying on roads / Parked in Public Places or Entering in New Delhi - Traffic Police will have the right to Seize the Vehicle and also simultaneously fine the Owner.

Its also to be noted that - the Time Frame is irrespective of Vehicle capacity. So - whether its 1.3 Litre Diesel Engine or 2.5 Litre Diesel Engine - all cars will be de-registered and the re-sale value will be completely eroded after de-registration of such cars.

Considering the fact that Air Pollution levels in not only in Delhi - but even other cities are one among highest. Only BS-4 Vehicles can only be registered in India

Its expected that in 2018 - 2019 (before implementation of BS-6 Norms which is coming in 2020) - similar set of measures could likely be adopted in other cities having high Pollution Levels - Delhi NCR, Patna, Gwalior, Kanpur, Agra, Ahmedabad, Raipur, Amritsar, Ludhiana along with 3 other Metro Cities - Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata.

Kerala Government has also tried on similar way.

After Impact Consequences on Ban of 10 Year Old Diesel and 15 Year Old Petrol Cars

However - Some Important Questions - which yet to be addressed and needs to be answered

» There are many vehicles which are not causing pollution and have been maintained well even though they may be more than 10 years old. Similarly, there are vehicles that are polluting just 5 years after being bought. Can there be no Stringent Pollution Check Criteria instead of Ageing Factor

» There Could be a Petrol Car Driven Just 50000 Kms in 15 Yrs or Diesel Car Driven just 80000 Kms in 10 Yrs - well maintained with all Periodic Servicing done on time Vis a Vis Petrol Car Driven 1.2 Lakh Km in 10 Yr or Diesel Car Driven 1.5 Lakh Km in 5 yr without been Maintained well. The Decision seems considering not the entire Aspect

» If Ageing of the Vehicle is the Sole Criteria, then Whats the relevance of PUC Checks and Why is PUC Checks not been stringent enough

» What happens to people who have well maintained old vehicles and cannot afford new ones. Been - Car Value will Depreciate a Lot - who will bear in Loss

» Substantial Depreciation in Used Car Value with hardly any takers for 10 year+ Old Diesel Cars and 15 Yr+ Old Petrol Cars. Used Car Dealers will Probably only give Scrap Value on Exchange of 10 Year+ Old Diesel Car in Delhi, 15 Year+ Old Petrol Cars and sell in Other States

» Insurance Companies might Stop Renewing Car Insurance for Vehicles which will be more than 10 years Old in Delhi, leading to uninsured vehicles with suspectible uninsured cars.

» Last but not Least - Life Time Road Tax is Paid which is Valid for 15 Years from Date of Registration. How can the same be revoked within 10 Years Itself in case of Diesel Cars, is there any such clause in Motor Vehicle Act.

 


Air Pollution Update

With Government now Planning to Introduce Arbitrary Rule of where in Even Registration Number Cars (ending with 2,4,6,8,0) and Odd Number Registration Cars (1,3,5,7,9) - on alternate days

Here are alternate ways and suggestions to Reduce in Air Pollution

Am sure - it would go long way in Curbing down Air Pollution - rather than adopting measures like Banning Cars based on Ageing or Implementing Even-Odd Registration Numbers


 

 

So whats the Solution ?

New Cars

Check Prices with Complete Features

Make
Model

 

Exchange Old Vehicle in NCR Territory, This may be better as Valuation Price (though will remain lower) vis a Vis Scrap Value.  But due to Euro Emission Norms and Euro III Norms Prevalent Pan India (Cars Manufactured in 2005 onwards only meets Euro 3 Emission Norms) 

The Cars which are more than 10 Years Old will not be able to meet these Emission Norms and thus can not be re-registered in other state by New Buyer - despite paying Road Tax again. It will put in Original Car Owner at Risk - in event of Car been used in Illegal activity or Road Mishap - been registration will show in his name as per RTO records

or Sell the Car at Scrap Value in Delhi.

What ever it may be - the Decision might just need to be modified a bit to catch hold of actual Polluting Vehicles with Heavy Penalty and if implemented correctly will rather work in favor of reducing Air Pollution - causing some improvement in Air Quality.

Find out a possible way to re-register it in a nearby state which doesn't impose such a ban or if it may not be possible, then sell it off. Because in Delhi, all these vehicles will eventually become scrap.

Not possible-- as Delhi RTO is not issuing NOC for 15 year old vehicles.
