Automobile dealers' body on Saturday asked vehicle manufacturers to shift wholesale despatches to BS 6 compliant vehicles only, with the Supreme Court refusing its request to extend deadline for sale and registration of BS 4 vehicles beyond April 1.

The Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA) said considering the long downturn that has lasted well over a year now and the current dynamic demand situation, selling 100 per cent of the BS 4 vehicles currently in stock with its members by March 31 is a tough task.

"FADA, hence, appeals to all OEMs (original equipment manufactures) to shift completely to BS 6 vehicles for all wholesale despatches to dealers and stop further billing of BS 4 vehicles with immediate effect to dealers, thereby helping liquidation of the current BS 4 inventory for a smoother transition to BS 6," FADA President Ashish Kale said in a statement.

In an internal message circulated to dealers, the FADA president also advised dealers to plan liquidation of BS 4 inventory as per March 31, 2020, deadline for sale and registration of BS 4 vehicles. On Friday, the apex court had rejected an appeal by FADA to allow sale and registration of BS 4 vehicles beyond March 31.
