  • If left unsold, these old BS4 vehicles will be written off (scrapped) after 1st April 2020.

In an interview to ET, President of FADA, Mr Ashish Kale said: “We have requested the manufacturers that any BS-IV vehicles billed further, which are not against specific customer orders, should be on a returnable basis to avoid financial loss to dealers.”


According to Mr Kale, potential buyers are looking for diesel SUVs, and are waiting for manufacturers to announce the prices of their BS6 vehicles before making a decision.

Many are also delaying their purchase in hopes of steep discounts around March end when retailers may be forced to liquidate unsold inventory at a loss, he adds.
