The much anticipated vehicle scrappage policy has finally been approved by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), albeit applicable only to government vehicles for now. Under the policy vehicles of both, Central and State Governments that are older than 15 years will be scrapped. The policy was approved on January 25th this year and will come into effect on April 1st, 2022.

  • Government vehicles older than 15 years to be scrapped.
  • Green Tax or pollution tax also proposed for older vehicles.

 

 

 

Green tax:

  1. Personal vehicles to be charged with green tax at the time of renewal of registration certification after 15 years
  2. Higher green tax (50% of road tax) for vehicles being registered in highly polluted cities
  3. Differential tax will also be charged depending on fuel (petrol/ diesel) and the type of vehicle.
  4. Vehicles like strong hybrids, electric vehicles and those running on alternate fuels like CNG, ethanol and LPG will be exempted

I will fit a dummy CNG tank in car and extend the registration. Such rules will always have workaround. New agents will pop-up with new solutions.

We have 3rd/4th hand cars that run well in the market upto 20 years. Shared current statistics of our car market. This rule won't be implemented. There will be a backlash. Car is still a dream for many.

NEW DELHI: India has a ratio of merely 22 cars per thousand individuals, while the country has recently embarked on urbanisation, a top government official Wednesday said.

These new rules have totally changed the dynamics of the market and it is just going to worsen the 2nd hand car market for the one’s which are used for more than 6 years. 
But, I strongly feel that the most of the public utility vehicles run by the Govt have to be scrapped first before they get imposed on to the countrymen.

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning


      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcome


      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

       
      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time



      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest

    • Road trip in Electric Vehicle, San Francisco to Los Angeles
      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

       
      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
       
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
       
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$

    • New e-Pass Requirements by States (March 2021 onwards)
      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful
       
      Tamil Nadu
      Dated 9-Mar-2021
      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state. All passengers from states, except Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Puducherry, need an e-pass to enter the state.
