Chandigarh: Deputy Chief Minister, Shri Dushyant Chautala said that besides bringing about a reduction in pollution and boosting fuel import bill replacement demand, the Haryana Registered Vehicle Scrappage & Recycling Facility Incentive Policy 2024 will be introduced for the development of recycling in Haryana.


The objective of this policy is to transform the linear economy into a circular one by reclaiming inherent value in End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV) materials through reuse, recycling, and recovery methods, thereby contributing to a circular economy. In addition to promoting advanced scrap recycling facilities in Haryana, more employment opportunities will also be created for youth.

The Deputy Chief Minister was chairing a meeting today at the Haryana Niwas regarding the Haryana Registered Vehicle Scrap and Recycling Incentive Policy-2024.

He said that the central government has initiated the Motor Vehicles (Registration and Functions of Vehicle Scrapping Facility) Rules to systematically and environmentally remove old and unfit vehicles.

The Motor Vehicles (Registration and Functions of Vehicle Scrapping Facility) Rules, 2021 are being formulated to identify vehicles unsuitable for roads. The budget announcement made by the Chief Minister of Haryana for 2023-24 will provide incentives for vehicle scrap recycling in accordance with the Recycling Incentive Policy.

He stated that the aim of the new policy is to move towards electric vehicles, which are the need of the hour globally. This will also help reduce environmental pollution. Crude oil is depleting worldwide, and the entire world is researching alternative energy sources.


Solar energy is being promoted for vehicles and industries. He mentioned that under the new policy, by promoting Eco-Parks/Recycling Parks (Vehicle Scrapping Economy), it is intended to establish it as a recycling hub.

Apart from this, setting up of RVS and RF will be promoted jointly with auto OEMs.The Deputy Chief Minister directed officers to identify areas outside populated areas for recycling parks so that people do not face inconvenience.

He said that it is necessary to regularize the current informal and unorganized vehicle recycling industry/facility in Haryana. Incentives will only be available when a new vehicle is purchased from the state's OEM dealers and registered.

There will be a provision for high fitness fees according to the Central Motor Vehicle Rules after the vehicle's significant age. He informed that the applicant who has availed capital subsidy under this policy will not be eligible to avail incentives under the Net SGST Reimbursement Scheme under HEEP-2020.
