Besides setting environmental and procedural guidelines for the government-run scrappage centres, the policy states that petrol, diesel and CNG cars older than 15 years will be scrapped.

The Delhi government has revealed new guidelines for scrapping of vehicles in the National Capital Region. Called the Guidelines for Scrapping of Motor Vehicles in Delhi, 2018, the notification states that petrol, CNG and diesel vehicles that are older than 15 years and are found plying on the roads, parked in a public place, or abandoned will be scrapped. The registered owner of the vehicle will be given the scrap value of the model.

However, the policy also states that when it comes to petrol and CNG cars, if they are parked in a private space and can furnish adequate proof, then they will not be impounded.

The policy also provides environmental and procedural guidelines for the government-run scrappage yards including battery disposal, re-using and recycling of parts and dealing with the separation and storage of all automobile-related liquids and metals.
