Kee vehicles older than 15 years is going to ch now
NEW DELHI: It’s offi al now. Come April 2022, owners of more than 15-year-old cars will have to shell out eight times more than now to renew registration of their vehicles. Owners of heavy commercial vehicles, too, will have to pay nearly eight times higher fee to renew fitness certificates for their trucks and buses which are more than 15 years old.
The road, transport and highways ministry on Monday issued the notification for implementation of this new fee re gie from next year. The notification, however, will have no impact on vehicle owners in Delhi and its neighbourhoods where more than 10-year-old diesel and 15-year-old petrol vehicles are banned.
According to the notification, the renewal of registration of a 15-year-old car will cost Rs 5,000, which now is Rs 600. Similarly, the charge for registration-renewal of old motorcycles will be Rs 1,000, for which the current fee is Rs 300. Obtaining a fitness certificate for a 15 year-plus bus or truck will be Rs 12,500, which now is Rs 1,500. The renewal of fitness certificate for cabs will also be seven times more than the current charge of Rs 1,000.
Any delay in renewing registration of private vehicles will attract a penalty of Rs 300 per month, which for commercial vehicles will be Rs 500. Similarly, delay in renewal of fitness certificate for commercial vehicles will attract a daily penalty of Rs 50.
The increase in renewal of registration and fitness certificates is aimed at discouraging people from kee their old vehicles.
Fitness and not age shall be the criterion. Most Middle class buy a vehicle for life and would not have run even one lakh kilometers, after 15 years
This madness of this govt may affect it's prospect in the upcoming ions. This is a poor country, not UK, USA. I don't have any car, but my brother has purchased a car and I very well know that he has driven very few kilometer in the last 13-14 years. He will not be able to purchase a new one. The govt imposing blind rule where majority of people are middle class. The govt must review it's horrible rule immediately.
Very very horrible decision, everybody including me has over 15 years-old car and motorcycle. it'll only be looting honest people. besides rich people change their vehicles very very frequently.
Either become rich or get rid of your car; it's a simple decision.
I have a private vehicle driven only 37000 km and in top class condition. I can't get to renew the registration because of this stupid rule.
People keep old vehicles because they can't afford new ones. Modi go nment is anti middle-class.
Cor ion, bribes, crookedness are rampant in the Traffic dept all over India.
India is not dubai . Can not afford to change cars 15 years. It depends on car brands.. some are good even at 25 years
Biggest polluters on road are govt city buses !! Then come lorries , autorickshaws, small cc 2 wheelers and later..cars
Private cars need be treated differently.
Is it the urge to get international accm! India is a poor country. Even most of those who have high end cars can't buy more than two in their life times.
This rule is made to benefit not the common man, nor for cutting pollution, but the manufacturers of new vehicles. Their lobbying is what made the go nment do this. People have an attachment towards their old vehicles, many for a lifetime.
shame shame on this go nment...corporate mafia working .How long will this go nment continue to make such policies only to benefit a s few
the amount is not big enough to force the owners to scrap thier 15 yr old vehicle
This govt always comes up with weird desicions . People have no alternative but to accept .
Just forcing and imposing on people there crooked ideas.
Good decision. Incentives too should be given initially
An illiterate go nment is always found to be in a inveterate habit of weird and stupid decision making.
Indian govt has become Insensitive towards middle class.
very soon Indian Gujarati Cowboy will bring Bullock carts back on the streets
