In order to formalize the registration process of the Vintage Motor Vehicles, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has sought suggestions to amend the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989. At present, there are no rules for regulating the registration process of vehicles of heritage value.
The draft rules define Vintage Motor Vehicles as all two-wheelers and four-wheelers which are in personal use and are more than 50 years old from the date of their first registration. These include imported vehicles. Objective is to preserve and promote the heritage of old vehicles in India. The draft rules are available on the Ministry’s website.
Objections and suggestions in this regard may be sent to the Director (MVL), email : [email protected], Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Transport Bhawan, Parliament Street, New Delhi within 30 days of the date of notification.
