Vehicles more than 15 years old will cost you eight times more now; Be aware

It’s official now. From April 2022, owners of more than 15-years old cars will have to shell out eight times more than now to renew the registration of their vehicles. Owners of heavy commercial vehicles too will have to pay nearly eight times higher fee to renew fitness certificates for their trucks and buses which is more than 15 years old.

The road transport and highways ministry on Monday issued the notification for implementation of this new fee regime from next year. The notification, however, will have no impact on vehicle owners in Delhi and its neighborhood where more than 10 years old diesel and more than 15-year-old petrol vehicles are banned.

Any delay in renewing the registration of private vehicles will attract a penalty of Rs300 per month, which for commercial vehicles will be Rs500. Similarly, a delayed penalty of Rs 50.

The increase in the renewal of registration and fitness certificates is aimed at discouraging people from keeping their old vehicles.
