Union Minister has announced about the upcoming Vehicle Scrappage policy. All are not aware about this policy and curios to know that what will happen after this policy came into force. Today we are going to share about a part about this policy related to vintage cars/bike and classic cars/bikes. Some of vintage and classic vehicles also belonged to the erstwhile kings and royalty of India and contribute to India’s rich history as well. On the other hand there are classic cars which are slightly newer and faster as well. These vehicles demand respect and scrapping them would be nothing short of murdering Indian automobile history. So it comes as a sense of relief when Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari recently said that vintage cars will not be affected by the upcoming Vehicle Scrappage Policy.
On other part some condition has levied on the vintage and classic vehicles scrap values that is foremost has lot of confusion over what classifies to be a vintage car or bike. Usually, the classic car moniker applies to vehicles over 20 years old. Antique cars are over 45 years old, and vintage cars are built between 1919 and 1930. But as with many subjects in the motoring world, not everyone can agree on a single definition. The Vehicle Scrappage Policy then only mentions about vintage cars which means cars which are over 50 years old are safe.
However, till now it is not being clear about categories division on vintage and classic vehicle. Hoping that after full fledge of policy its will be specified clearly. Till then hoping that the new Vehicle Scrappage Policy will consider not just the history of the Indian automobile but also the evolution of the same.
