FADA approaches Supreme Court’s Door for BS4 Vehicle Sale Extension

Implementation of BS6 Emission norms are a couple of weeks away and by 1st April 2020, sale and purchase of BS4 vehicles would cease with immediate effect. Automobile manufacturers are offering lucrative deals on BS4 models to the Indian customers in order to clear their unsold BS4 stock. In a new development on the ongoing BS6 situation, Auto industry body The Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA) on Tuesday, 17th March 2020 filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking an extention to the sale and registration of BS4 vehicles till 31st of May’20. 

The Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA) on behalf of its members has approached Hon’ble Supreme Court by filing an Interlocutory Application. The SC had earlier directed in their judgement that no BS4 vehicle will be sold or registered post March 31, 2020. 

FADA President Ashish Harsharaj Kale said, ”Post our initial application, necessitated due to huge unsold BS-IV inventory and slowing sales, getting rejected by the Hon’ble apex court on 14th February’20, there has been a drastic change in circumstances in conducting business as usual. SARS-CoV-2 a.k.a Coronavirus (Covid-19) which emerged in Wuhan in the Hubei province of China has spread rapidly across the globe and also in India.”. 

Kale further added, “Owning to situations which are beyond our control and the fact that many of our members may face dealership closures if leftover with unsold BS-IV stocks, FADA has once again approached the apex body with a request for permission of sale and registration of BS-IV vehicles till 31st May’20 and hopes to get an urgent hearing in the Hon’ble Supreme Court owing to the criticality of the issue and the deadline of 31st March approaching fast.”
