Time to sell your old cars? 15 year rule passed!


Recommended Posts

Government released a statement:


 “The Minister approved the policy of deregistration and scrapping of vehicles owned by Government department and PSU, which are above 15 years in age. It is to be notified and will come into effect from April 1 2022.”






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

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 Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden paradise, Andhra Pradesh
      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
