I have a Maruti wagon R 2002 model. It has run about 59000 km. now. Some tinkering work is required. Otherwise it is in good running condition. I propose to sell it with an apprehension that the Government has proposals to de-register 15 year old cars. I am in Chennai.

Can you please suggest some solution on whether to go ahead with selling and buy another car or to hold the present car for another 5 years.
Thank u in advance for urgent reply.

Its right - considering Environment and the fact that 15 year Old cars are BS-1 or BS-2 compliant which has relative much higher emissions as against BS-IV Compliant car - Government may take up extreme step of disallowing registrations

However - at the same time, there are talks on so as to incentivize owners by offering them rebate in VAT - so that a thrust could be offered to owners to go in exchange with a modern, more compliant emission car

As you referred in car is in good condition - its important to assess in - the price you getting for resale
Also - do you have requirement of another replacement car or is the Wagon R an extra car in family. Based on all above - take a judicious call to dispose off your Old car in exchange or wait for Government policy to offer VAT Benefit accordingly.

Hope should help !!
