SC extends deadline of transition from BS IV to BS VI

The Supreme Court has extended the transition from BS-IV to BS VI vehicles by 10 more days given the current 21-lockdown scenario to fight the COVID-19 virus. The initial deadline was March 31, 2020. However, it has been extended keeping in mind the centre’s order of a complete lockdown in the country for 21 days. The order comes after the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association had moved the apex court seeking a relaxation in the deadline to sell their BS-IV vehicle stock. There are currently around 7 lakh unsold two-wheelers, 12,000 commercial vehicles and 15,000 unsold cars of BS-IV standard.
