A Bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and B R Gavai of the Supreme Court on Tuesday permitted Registration of BS-VI light and Heavy Diesel Vehicles used for Public Utility and Essential Services.

The Court held that the production of court orders should not be insisted on by the authorities for the registration of vehicles in this category.

The Bench stated, “We are of the considered view that the registration can be permitted in respect of BS-VI light and heavy diesel vehicles used for public utility and essential services. The registering authorities are directed not to insist on any order passed by this court to be produced for registration of such vehicles.

The order of the Court was passed on the basis of the report submitted by an Amicus Curiae, Advocate A D N Rao, which stated that BS-VI light and heavy diesel vehicles used for public utility and essential services may be permitted to be registered.

A plea, seeking relaxation for the sale of BS-IV vehicles in Jammu and Kashmir on account of the curfew and internet suspension imposed in 2019 following the abrogation of Article 370. was also dealt with by the Court.

The Applicant was asked by the Court to approach the Jammu and Kashmir High Court for seeking relief. The order was by the Court while pleas including the Public Interest Litigation filed by Environmentalist MC Mehta, seeking permission for registration of BS-VI diesel vehicles.
