New Delhi: On 8 July last, the Supreme Court gave a big verdict on BS-IV vehicles. Under this, the court said that after March 31, there will be no registration of vehicles. The apex court upheld its decision until the next order. This means that there will be no registration of BS-IV vehicles. Along with this, Judge Arun Mishra, who is hearing the case, has expressed displeasure over the vehicles sold in March.
He questioned the sale of vehicles in large numbers. The apex court said that more vehicles than usual were sold in the last week of March, while there was a lockdown. Along with this, the Supreme Court has also asked for BS-IV vehicle sales figures in March. The apex court had set a deadline of 31 March 2020 for the sale and registration of BS-IV vehicles. In the meantime, there was a public curfew on 22 March, while lockdown was implemented in the entire country from 25 March.
