Vehicle Scrappage - benefits and disincentives
As an incentive, there will be waiver of the fee for issue of certificate of registration for a new vehicle, purchased against the authority of the Certificate of Deposit (CoD) issued by a Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility for a vehicle being scrapped,"
The disincentives include: 1). Increase in the fee for conducting fitness test and renewal of fitness certificate for motor vehicles more than 15 years old. 2). Increase in the fitness certification fee for transport vehicles more than 15 years old. 3). Increase in the renewal of registration fee for personal vehicles (non-transport vehicles) more than 15 years old.

and PVs extensively for business purpose
and such vehicles must be scrapped even
before the standard age of 15 years like
