New Delhi: Supreme Court has prohibited BS-IV vehicle registration until it rules on the selling of these vehicles during the lockout time. It also voiced dissatisfaction over the selling of these vehicles well beyond what was permitted in relaxation, even after March 31 during coronavirus lockdown.
The SC bench said, “During the lockout, an unprecedented amount of BS-IV vehicles were leased.” The case is scheduled to be discussed on 13 August.
In March, the supreme court had extended the deadline for the ban on the selling of BS-IV vehicles and permitted the selling of 1,05 lakh. However, as dealers started to sell outside the relaxed cap, the order that allowed dealers to sell BS-IV for a brief window span after the lockout had been removed was later revoked.
