If you are thinking of buying a new vehicle and are thinking of buying a new BS4 after lockdown, this car will be 'secondhand' even though it is new. This thing is shocking but fearing that the crores of BS4 vehicles worth crores of rupees will be lost, the dealers found a place to locate such vehicles during lockdown.
After the FADA plea, the Supreme Court on 6 April ordered that automobile dealers can sell only 10 per cent of the BS4 stock after the lockdown opens. In this also, the condition was that these vehicles would not be sold in Delhi and NCR. Earlier, the last date for registering BS4 vehicles was 31 March, but due to the lockdown, the apex court had relaxed with certain conditions.
Dealers started registering by purchasing the BS4 vehicles lying in stock on their own. Dealers got the trick and got these vehicles registered in the name of their staff and relatives. This situation does not belong to any one city, but dealers in almost all states have adopted this tactic. Dealers say this is because most automobile manufacturers refused to take back BS4 vehicles from dealers. Due to this, dealers became compelled how to locate these vehicles.
According to the figures of Federation of Automobiles Dealers Association (FADA), Federation of Automobile Dealers Dealers (FADA) as of March, the number of unsold BS4 two-wheelers in the country alone was between 6 to 8 lakhs, worth more than Rs 6400 crore. was.
According to the report, Narendra Honda Batra, director of SL Honda in Dehradun, said that the Supreme Court said that dealers can sell only 10 per cent of BS4 vehicles within 10 days after the lockdown ends. While dealers in the state have a lot of stock of BS-4 vehicles. In Dehradun alone, around 800 two-wheelers and 150 cars are BS4 engines.
The dealer says that even after selling 10 percent of the vehicles, many vehicles will be sold, due to which the dealer is going to suffer a lot. In order to avoid loss, almost all the dealers registered the remaining stock of BS4 in their own or their names. In such a situation, people who buy BS4 vehicle after lockdown will get a new vehicle, but in the registration of the vehicle, their name will be recorded as second hand owner only.
According to Sanjee Auto owner Laksh Batra, 150 towers vehicles were registered in RTO in March itself. These vehicles will be sold after the lockdown is over.
Deputy Transport Commissioner SK Singh says that according to the order of the Supreme Court, there is an exemption for registration of BS4 vehicles in the state till 30 April 2020. These vehicles have already been sold, but they were not registered. Therefore, to complete the process of registration of these vehicles, transport offices are exempted from lockdown under special circumstances.
