Noida Police Will Seize and Acrap 1.2 Lakh Vehicles – Report

Noida Police Will Seize and Acrap 1.2 Lakh Vehicles – Report

Noida Police, which is becoming tighter in its action and surveillance, will begin punishing and seizing all old vehicles whose registration has expired but are still driving on Noida roads as of today. According to the Noida Traffic Police, it has already sent legal notifications to around 1.19 lakh Noida auto owners who now own vehicles with expired registration.

Starting today, the Noida Traffic Police will severely enforce a ban on petrol vehicles older than 15 years and diesel vehicles older than 10 years. Due to the alarming increase in pollution levels in the region, the registration for these cars will not be renewed, according to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) standards stipulated in the National Capital Region (NCR).

There are 23 automobiles owned by prominent government officials among the 1.19 lakh car owners who have received notifications from Noida Traffic Police, including the District Magistrate, District Commissionerate, Police Commissionerate, Trade Tax Commissionerate, and many more.

However, Noida Traffic Police has previously said that it will treat everyone equally in front of the law, with no preferential treatment given to anyone under this new regulation.

According to the Noida Traffic Police, automobiles with registration numbers beginning with ‘Z’ or prior to UP16Z are over 15 years old. Noida Traffic Police has already deployed scanners in strategic locations and will begin targeting such vehicles that are still on public roadways.

If these cars are discovered, the Noida Traffic Police will seize them and penalize the driver up to Rs 20,000.

Owners of such ancient cars have two options: scrap them or request authorization to transport them to other places after obtaining NOCs. The new harsher effort by Noida Traffic Police is a follow-up to a brief crackdown on BS-III petrol and BS-IV diesel vehicles in Delhi in January 2022. However, the interim prohibition was quickly overturned on January 12th, as the air quality index began to improve.

In recent years, the unacceptably high levels of pollution in the National Capital Region have compelled governments to impose harsher restrictions on the use of petrol cars older than 15 years and diesel vehicles older than 10 years. Because of the tighter enforcement by the traffic police teams of Delhi and Noida, many automobile owners are obliged to remove their old vehicles from the NCR or sell them to car owners in other states, particularly those nearby.
