Odisha Cabinet okays registered vehicle scrapping facility policy 2022

The Odisha Cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik approved Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility Policy-2022 to phase out old vehicles from the roads. However, the policy is causing a lot of concern among vehicle owners in the State.

This policy is aimed at reducing vehicular pollution recommending mandatory scrapping of over 15-year-old vehicles at the scrapping centre. The owners will also get incentives to buy new vehicles. The government will provide a scrap value of six per cent of the ex-showroom price against the new vehicle purchased by the owner.
