New Registration For Vintage Vehicles under CMV Rule, 1989 for the registration process

Cuttack:2/1/23: Good news for enthusiasts and collectors of vintage vehicles, owners of classic vehicles of more than 50 years can apply for special number plates and enjoy exemption from scrappage in Odisha. With an aim to preserve and promote the heritage of vintage vehicles, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has made provision under CMV Rule, 1989 for the registration process of Vintage Motor Vehicles. Odisha being a state of heritage & culture is the first state to implement this provision so as to fulfil the ambition of the vehicle owner intends to keep the vehicle.

Shedding light on this regard, DiptiRanjan Patra, Joint Commissioner Transport, Technical said, “MoRTH has taken initiatives to discourage the use of old vehicles by introducing a scrapping policy. At the same time to preserve and promote the heritage of old vehicles in India, Central Govt. has formalised the registration process for vintage motor vehicles. The new rules shall provide salient features such as retention of old already registered vehicles with a new Vintage registration mark “VA” series (Unique Registration Mark).”

As per the rule, two-wheelers and four-wheelers (personal use) that are more than 50 years old from the date of their first registration (including imported vehicles) shall be defined as Vintage Motor Vehicles. However, only vehicles that have no substantial overhaul including modification in chassis or body shell, and/or engine will be considered vintage.

Application for registration/re-registration shall be made as per Form 20 and shall be accompanied by an insurance policy, fee, bill of entry in case of imported vehicles, and old RC in case of an already registered vehicle in India. The old certificate of registration of a motor vehicle after being registered as a Vintage Motor Vehicle shall be marked as cancelled and the owner may retain such cancelled certificate of registration for historical purposes only.
