The Supreme Court has pulled up the automobile associations, which also includes the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA). It was seen that its order on relaxations for the sale and registration of BS4 vehicles has been openly disregarded by dealers.
A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra, which also had Justice S Abdul Nazeer and Justice Indira Banerjee sat and heard the case related to the relaxation in the sale and registration of vehicles. The apex court observed that it had allowed sales and registration of 1.05 lakh BS4 vehicles, but 2.55 lakh BS4 vehicles have been sold since then.
The apex court has asked the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to submit the details of all the BS4 vehicles that have been sold and registered. The Supreme Court, on March 27, had said that it will allow the sale of BS4 compliant vehicles for 10 days after the first phase of the nationwide lockdown.
In other recent news, the auto industry in our country has faced a huge hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, Royal Enfield has decided to shut down 12 regional offices, including its corporate office in Gurugram.
This news was confirmed by an internal circular, which stated that Royal Enfield employees across the country will continue to work from home. Offices in Gurugram, Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Jharkhand, Hyderabad, Bhubaneshwar and others will be shut down immediately. This may be a part of the company's cost-cutting technique.
The circular stated that "the admin team has begun the process of renegotiating the terms for an early exit for the remaining RO (regional office) locations, where the lock-in period is beyond one year, but sales, service, apparel employees in these regions will continue on a work-from-home basis."
Royal Enfield also updated the Continental GT 650, Interceptor 650 and the all-time seller Classic 350 to meet the BS6 emission norms.

The Supreme Court has done the right thing by pulling out all the records of the BS4 vehicles that were registered after the given grace days for the vehicles to be officially registered. This is being done so that our environment stays clean and protected from the harmful emission norms.
