The Vehicle Scrappage Policy, 2021 focuses on phasing out old and unfit vehicles. It aims to de-register private cars over 20 years old and commercial vehicles over 15 years old.
What is Vehicle Scrappage Policy in India
The Vehicle Scrappage Policy is a government-funded programme to scrap old and unfit vehicles and replace them with modern and new vehicles on Indian roads. The primary goal of the policy is to create an ecosystem for phasing out unfit and polluting vehicles to achieve a lower carbon footprint in the country.
Beginning April 1, 2023, fitness testing of Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCVs) shall be conducted only through Automated Testing Stations (ATSs). For other types of Commercial Vehicles (CVs) and Private Vehicles (PVs), the fitness testing shall also be conducted through the ATS and begin on June 1, 2024.
Commercial vehicles and private vehicles older than 15 and 20 years, respectively, shall be scrapped if they fail the fitness test. If a vehicle fails the fitness test, it shall be defined as an ELV (End-of-Life Vehicle).
What is the aim of Vehicle Scrappage Policy
Here are some of the key takeaways of the vehicle scrappage scheme.
1.) Reduce pollution by scrapping vehicles without valid fitness and registration.
2.) Improve passenger, road and vehicular safety.
3.) Generate employment in the automobile industry.
4.) Formalise the current informal vehicle scrappage industry.
5.) Improve fuel efficiency and reduce maintenance costs for vehicle owners.
6.) Increase availability of low-cost raw materials for automotive, steel and electronics industry.
Benefits of the Vehicle Scrappage Policy
Here’s a list of potential benefits of the new vehicle scrap policy for the economy, automobile sector, vehicle owners, and others.
1.) Scrapping unfit vehicles will result in less air pollution and better air quality.
2.) With old vehicles being scrapped, the demand for new vehicles will rise as the old ones will need to be replaced by new ones. More than 51 lakh light motor vehicles (private and commercial) are more than 20 years old.
3.) Overall, the automobile sector will benefit from the new scrappage policy leading to more job opportunities. For example, new vehicle scrapping centres will need manpower.
4.) New advanced vehicles will be comparatively safer. For example, new cars come with superior safety features.
5.) The recycling industry will also be more active leading to higher revenue.
6.) Vehicle owners might receive tax benefits as an incentive to scrap an old vehicle.
7.) Vehicle owners might also get the best price for car scrappage for workable parts such as tyres.
