Scrapping not the ok for ordinary citizens

Scrapping commercial vehicles is fine but forcing ordinary citizens who have bought a four wheeler after lots of effort cannot be asked to scrap their vehicle and buy a new one. It also not ok to apply this rule for retired people where is the money? Looks like policy makers have lost ability to think rationally!! Politicians swindle every where so they don’t see dearth of money even after quitting assembly or parliament more

Dear All, if not scrapped them BS2 BS3 vehical will run on roads for ever. Also registration was valid for 15 years petrol and 10 years diseal. It was continuing the same. If you maintains your cars depends on pollution check it can be extended. Please go through all the details. And buy electric vehical for short/daily travel. Save environment and money both. more  
Yes, forcing ordinary citizens who have bought a four wheeler for private use, after lots of effort cannot be asked to scrap their vehicle and buy a new one. more  
After retirement, senior citizens have to go mostly to local shopping centres for daily needs. They should be allowed to use their old car for this limited purpose subject the car being in a fit condition. more  
For a senior citizen who hardly runs the vehicle a mileage criteria should be used. Say 20000 kms or 15 years which ever is earlier. In fact for senior citizens they should be allowed to keep the four wheeler for 20 years before scrapping it .An yearly fitness check can be instituted after 15 years . more  
Formalising a sector through a policy on scrapping, would be good for a sector that has been till now, largely informal. Let us remember that high grade scrap would yield good quality steel to be used in manufacturing equipment and automobiles, thereby also helping cost reduction. How? Because metals from mined ores, the traditional way, require intensive energy, that would be saved when we have some metal in pristine condition obtained through scrappage. Energy and resource saving. more
