What is the car scrap policy?

The process of scrapping a car is governed by the Vehicle Scrappage Policy 2021 laid down by the Government of India. Under this scrap policy, when a car reaches the end of its useful life or fails to meet emission and fitness standards, it can be scrapped. Car owners can voluntarily choose to scrap their vehicles, and in return, they receive benefits such as financial incentives, tax rebates, or discounts on purchasing a new vehicle. The scrapped cars are sent to authorised scrap yards, where they are dismantled, and the materials are recycled or disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner. This policy aims to reduce vehicular pollution, promote recycling, and stimulate the automotive industry while providing benefits to those willing to scrap their old vehicles.
