The Supreme Court has allowed registration of BS4 vehicles which were sold in March, but could not complete the process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the apex court noted that only those vehicles will be eligible for registration which were sold before the lockdown and details of which were uploaded on the government's Vahan portal.
In the affidavit filed in the Supreme Court the government had given details of the number of vehicles sold and those uploaded on the E-Vahan portal.
The government said that the data placed by the automobile dealers association in the court had been verified from the information available on the Vahan and non-Vahan states also.
The court had on July 8 recalled its March 27 order by which it had allowed sale of BS 4 vehicles for 10 days across India, except in Delhi. (AIR)
