Delhi: Diesel cars older than 10 years allowed on roads, but there’s a catch

1 min

If you are in Delhi and have a disel car that is more than 10 years old then that will not be a problem for you anymore. This week, the Delhi government has allowed people to use more than 10 years old diesel, but there’s a catch.

The city government has said if a person converts their decade-old diesel cars to electric engines only then they will be allowed to use their cars. The Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot had announced on November 18 that the national capital is open to internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric retrofitting. He said retrofitting of diesel vehicles will enable their use beyond the prescribed 10 years as electric vehicles.


In a tweet, Gahlot wrote, “Vehicle if found fit can convert their diesel to electric engines”. He added that the transport department will empanel manufacturers of electric kits for retrofitting conventional internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric ones. Once empanelled, this will allow old diesel vehicles to continue ply in Delhi-NCR even after 10 years.
