The Supreme Court has ordered car manufacturers to release details about the number of BS-III vehicles that remain unsold.
According to ET Auto, the Supreme Court stated that based on the numbers, it would decide whether or not manufacturers will be allowed to sell the cars after April 1, when the new BS4 norms come into effect.
The Supreme Court also directed the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) to provide details of the number of BS-III compliant vehicles produced in the country from December 31, 2015 up till today.
SIAM apparently informed the pollution control board that around 20,000 cars and SUVs, about 7,50,000 two-wheelers, 47,000 three-wheelers and 75,000 commercial vehicles compliant with BS-III norms would remain unsold as of April 1.
BS-IV emission norms will come into effect on April 1, 2017 and automakers are offering big discounts in a bid to clear out old stock, so do keep an eye out and you may find yourself a real good deal.
