New Delhi: The Supreme Court has banned the registration of BS4 vehicles until further orders. Earlier in the hearing, the court gave more time to the central government to give information related to the uploading of BS4 vehicles on the vehicle portal after 31 March.
Next hearing on August13:
During the hearing on Friday, the court expressed displeasure with the Vehicle Dealers Association for selling large numbers of vehicles during the lockdown in March and for violating the court order. The SC said that such vehicles were sold during the lockdown in March and even after 31 March. The court will next hear the case on August 13.
A three-member bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra made it clear during a brief hearing from the video conference that the registration of the BS-4 vehicle will be stopped till further decision on the matter. The Supreme Court has directed all transport authorities not to register the BS-4 vehicle till further orders.
The deadline was 31st March:
The Supreme Court had fixed the deadline for sale and registration of BS-4 vehicles till 31 March 2020. Meanwhile, public curfew was imposed on 22 March and then nationwide lockdown was implemented from 25 March.
Meanwhile, dealers had a large number of BS-4 vehicles (two-wheeler, four-wheeler) left for sale. Therefore, dealers had moved to SC to increase the deadline for sale and registration of vehicles. After that, the Supreme Court had given permission to the dealers to sell 10 percent BS-4 vehicle.
Earlier, on July 8, the Supreme Court had withdrawn the order given on March 27 for the sale of BS-4 vehicles. In this order, the SC had said that BS-4 vehicles would be sold in other parts of the country besides Delhi-NCR for ten days after the removal of the applicable lockdown due to corona virus. This decision was later withdrawn by the court.
