“It came to be known that the states which were notified about the green tax have considered it in an ineffective way. We want to notify the state governments under Motor Vehicles Act to consider imposing a green tax on older vehicles which are polluting the environment,” Aramane said.

If a vehicle that failed to pass the automated test, is found on the road then it will lead to huge penalties and the vehicle will also be impounded.

Talking about the policy, Gadkari said “The export component which at present is Rs. 1.45 lakh crore will shoot up to Rs. 3 lakh crores in the coming years and further added that once this policy comes into practice then the availability of scrapped material like steel, plastic, rubber, aluminum, etc. will be used in the manufacturing of automobile parts that are going to reduce their production cost by 30 to 40 percent. Also, the policy will boost to new technologies that will result in better mileage of vehicles.”

Under the scheme, HMV (Heavy motor vehicle) or transport vehicles older than eight years could be charged green tax at the time of renewal of fitness certificate at the rate of 10 to 25 percent of road tax.
