The Govt via Nitin Gadkari Minister of Road has proposed vehicle scrapping policy and I am attaching.

Why had the kilometer criteria not being considered and the incentives proposed are not good enough.

Can LocalCircles please escalate what feedback u collected in survey. more

Agree that this policy has the propensity to benefit automobile manufacturers, with giving their sales a boost, and incentivising continuing with combustion engine technology. Scrap must be given the status of a cheaply available raw material, since getting metal is cheaper from used cars than mined ores, and consequently there must be a government determined car price, where the vehicle has been made from scrap. Moreover, vehicles thus produced may be given certain tax incentives, insofar as these help cleaning up the emissions. Private industry has created the private transportation superstructure, with automobiles they make filling our individual luxury or high end mobility needs, let them help infrastructure development, clearing the roads - scrap recycling leading to freeing up space used by such voluminous scrap. more

This is yet another retrogative step by this Government to squeeze the citizens, obviously for the benefit of Vehicle manufacturers and corrupt Vehicle Inspectors! If the Government is so keen to reduce vehicular pollution, why not to ban total manufacturing of new Vehicles in the country atleast for the next 2 years? By increasing fee for renewal of Vehicle registration, will the vehicle pollution be reduced? Has the Government no concern for the people? more  
Well said chittadeep and Amitabh sur more  
Insofar as the policy would boost availability of raw material for automotive, steel and electronics industry, as after all getting the metal from ore mining is very energy intensive, wherein this harvesting metals alternative would prove resource saving. Cross-fertilisation among industries would lead to better scoping and scale of operations. No fit car, that runs cleanly, however should be scrapped, to benefit only automobile manufacturers, citing scrapping laws. more
