In a major news for vintage car and bike enthusiasts, the National Green Tribunal has permanently exempted vintage and classic cars from the 15-year-old vehicle ban. As per the previous order, all vehicles older than fifteen years old were to be scrapped in the Delhi-NCR region. However, the ban was opposed by enthusiasts and owners alike given the historical importance of the said vehicles. As per the order, vintage and classic cars registered under the Motor Vehicles Act to be used for exhibitions, rallies and maintenance will be permanently from the ban.

The ban will affect over 10,000 vintage vehicles in the country that span from 1886 to 1987, which had an uncertain future. The Delhi-NCR region alone is said to have about 1200 vehicles that fall under this category. The classic car movement has been opposing the ban, which was brought into effect after increased air pollution concerns in the national capital. The owners argued that these cars not only held higher value but were also of historical importance and served different roles in the growth of vehicular transport of the nation.

After the ban was announced earlier this year, owners had to take special permission from the green court to drive these vintage vehicles on public roads.
