The Supreme Court of India has extended the BS4-sale deadline by 10 days post lockdown
COVID-19 pandemic in India has caused a lockdown period which is expected to end on 17th May. Post this, dealerships with leftover BS4 models can sell the vehicles for 10 days but on a conditional basis. The Supreme Court of India reached this decision after FADA (Federation of Automobile Dealers Association) and (SIAM) Society of Automobile Manufacturers made an appeal.
In view of this short period to clear out stocks, motorcycle dealerships across the country are selling off pending BS4 stocks of their high-capacity motorcycles at hefty discounts. These discounts could vary depending on the respective dealership but one might be able to find a good deal in most cases.
