  • Auto Industry Challenged Further on Time to Deliver BS VI Vehicles

    25-Oct-2018 | New Delhi

    The Auto Industry has always strived to be proactive in mitigating vehicular emissions and is bound to honour the verdict of the Supreme Court in the matter of Sales and Registration of BS VI Vehicles versus manufacture, with effect from 1st April 2020, despite the huge challenge this change in the date poses for the industry as a whole. This was stated by Mr. Rajan Wadhera, President, Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) today. Mr. Wadhera said that the Government had provided a clear window of 3 months for registering the small number of fully built vehicles and 6 months for Bus/Truck Chassis which may remain unsold with the dealer/manufacturer post 1st April 2020, after considering all aspects of the matter. However, the ongoing debate at the Supreme Court had created a huge ambiguity leading to policy uncertainty. While the verdict reads down a clear Gazette Notification issued by Government, it also puts to rest the big ambiguity haunting the industry for so long, said Mr. Wadhera. With this new clarity , the industry will have to put in much more effort and attention to meet the new target date of ensuring sales and registration of only BS VI vehicles from 1st April 2020 onwards.
