Delhi Allows Registration of BS VI-Compliant Diesel Vehicles for Inter-State Stage Carriage

| Leave a Comment | Business

The Delhi government has allowed the registration of all BS VI-compliant diesel vehicles for inter-state stage carriage in the national capital. The decision was taken after the Supreme Court modified its previous order in July, which had allowed the registration of only BS VI-compliant diesel vehicles that were required for the G20 Summit.

The Delhi Transport Department issued an order on September 13, 2023, stating that all BS VI-compliant diesel vehicles with a capacity of more than 7+1 passengers, coaches, and buses will be allowed to be registered for inter-state stage carriage.

The Delhi Taxi and Tourist Transporters’ Operators’ Association welcomed the decision, saying that it will lead to the Delhi government earning revenue from the registration. The association also said that the buses and tempo travellers that have been allowed registration have lesser emissions than CNG vehicles, thus they will cause lesser pollution.

The decision is a major relief for the operators of inter-state stage carriages, who had been facing difficulties in getting their vehicles registered due to the Supreme Court’s previous order. The order is also expected to boost the tourism industry in Delhi.

Here are some additional details about the decision:

  • The decision is applicable to all BS VI-compliant diesel vehicles with a capacity of more than 7+1 passengers, coaches, and buses.
  • The vehicles must have an All India Tourist Permit (AITP).
  • The vehicles must be registered in the name of a tour operator or travel agency.
  • The vehicles must be used for inter-state travel only.

The decision is expected to come into effect immediately.
