SC extends time for sale of unsold inventory of BS-IV vehicles barring Delhi-NCR

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday allowed the sale of BS-IV compliant vehicles for 10 days, barring in Delhi-NCR, after the ongoing countrywide lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic is lifted.


The apex court, which had earlier fixed the deadline of March 31, 2020, for sale of BS-IV compliant vehicles across the country, passed the order on a plea by Federation of Automobile Dealers’ Association (FADA), which had sought extension of time for the sale of their unsold inventory amid coronavirus scare and economic slowdown.


A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta, which heard the matter on Friday through video-conferencing, made it clear however that no BS-IV vehicles will be allowed to be sold in Delhi-NCR from April 1, 2020.


Bharat Stage (BS) emission norms are standards instituted by the government to regulate the output of air pollutants from motor vehicles. The BS-IV norms have been enforced across the country since April 2017.
