DNA , New Delhi, Mar, 2017 :The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave weightage to health concerns over commercial interests when it banned the sale and registration of Bharat Stage (BS) -- III type of vehicles across the country from April 1. A bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta banned the sale and registration of vehicles that were not compliant with the BS IV emission norms. This move, which is seen as a major setback to automobile companies, will affect the sale of at least 8,24,275 two and three-wheelers and commercial vehicles valued at almost Rs 12,000 crore. BS IV compliant vehicles have been on roads in select cities since 2010, but, from April 1, the BS IV emission norms will be applicable to the entire country.
