The Supreme Court March 27 allowed the sale of BS-IV compliant vehicles for 10 days, barring in Delhi-NCR.
The apex ourt was hearing a pleas filed by the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA), last week. The body had sought an extension for sale inventory as it was facing problems due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta presided over the hearing via video-conferencing.
The apex court said that BS-IV vehicles bought before March 31 can be registered post-lockdown.
FADA has said in it plea that a move to not grant an extension could result in a large number of bankruptcies, in turn leading to job losses.Also Read: Auto dealers' body asks vehicle makers to shift completely to BS-VI compliant units
