As per the Delhi Government, in accordance with the National Green Tribunal (NGT). It has made an announcement about deregistration of diesel cars which are older than 10 years, beginning from the Jan 2022. This would come in the wake of increasing rising pollution at an alarming rate in the NCR.

However, there is a catch to this, those cars which are deregistered, an NOC would be provided, so that those can ply on the roads of other states, subject to the condition, that those states do not have similar rules. For example, if you have a Delhi registered 10-year-old diesel car, then your vehicle can ply on the roads of Maharastra, Gujarate or other states, if these states do not have the same deregistration rule.

For both, diesel as well as petrol cars, which are older than 15 years, no NOC will be offered and they would be directly send to scrap yard. Recently, the Delhi govt, has mandated 15-year-old vehicles, irrespective of them being, petrol and diesel to be scrapped.

These cars must be converted to electric, having retro fitment of EV kit. The above kits have to approved by the govt, which is presently under the process.
