Automakers demand ban on 15-yr-old vehicles to cut pollution

Auto industry body SIAM asked the government to ban vehicles that are 15 years old in the country to reduce pollution.

The industry body urged the government to come up with a legislation to ban such old polluting vehicles across the country.

“Auto industry is doing a lot of work to reduce pollution. We are working to move to BS-VI emission norms. In order to reduce pollution, we request the government to ban vehicles which are 15 years old,” SIAM President Vinod K. Dasari said.

He said every developed country has a strong automotive industry and India must look to strengthen the sector, which today accounts for nearly 50 per cent of the country’s manufacturing GDP.
