The Ministry of Road Transport has issued a notification regarding the Central Motor Vehicle Act. The Centre has decided to implement the scrappage policy on all government vehicles older than 15 years. This is being done to reduce the pollution caused by such old vehicles. Due to the government’s decision, the registration of all government vehicles older than 15 years will be cancelled.
This new order of the government will be applicable from April 1, 2023. All 15-year-old vehicles with the Centre, State, Union Territory, Municipal Corporation, State Transport and government autonomous institution have to be scrapped. However, army vehicles are not included in this.
