The government departments will not be able to renew the registration of their vehicles older than 15 years from April 1, 2022, if a proposal in this regard issued by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is finalized.
It has sought stakeholders’ comments to amend related rules in this regard issuing a notification.
Once approved, this will be applicable to all government vehicles — central or state governments, union territories, PSUs, municipal and autonomous bodies, as per the notification.

This will apply to all government – central, state, UT, PSUs, municipal bodies & autonomous bodies,” the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways said in a tweet.
