  • There will be 1 per cent Green Cess added to the cost of the vehicle
  • Manufacturers are yet to announce their revised prices
  • A total of 17 car manufacturers were affected by the diesel ban

In what will be a huge measure of relief, the Supreme Court has finally lifted the ban on diesel vehicles with a capacity of 2,000cc and above in Delhi NCR.  Initially, only a handful of manufacturers were said to have been hit by the ban, a little digging on our part revealed that there was a significant number of models and manufacturers who were adversely affected by the diesel ban. It has been a little over 8 months since the Supreme Court upheld the ban proposed by the National Green Tribunal on the registration of the diesel cars with a capacity of 2,000cc and above in the NCR region.

But do bear in mind that there will be a 1 per cent Green Cess that will be levied on sales of such cars. Although, most manufacturers are yet to officially announce a new pricing structure for the models which fell under purview of the ban, but be rest assured that the car that you have been looking at, might become a tad costlier but can be purchased and registered nonetheless.

(The Ford Endeavour, Toyota Innova Crysta and the Mercedes-Benz GLC were launched during the ban enforcement)
While some manufacturers held on to their new launches during the said period, some like Ford and Toyota went ahead with their launches of the new Endeavour and the Innova Crysta. Others such as Mahindra announced a new range of 1.99-litre engines (cheeky to say the least) for the XUV500 and the Scorpio, which are Mahindra best-sellers. The Audi Q7 was another sufferer as the ban came into effect merely days after its launch in December, 2015. Mercedes-Benz India was one of the manufacturers who really had it tough as the diesel engine options on all its models are above 2,000cc.

Here is a ready reckoner of cars which were banned (or not launched) from being sold and registered in the NCR, but are back on sale now, in what can be termed as one of the biggest 4-wheeler markets in the country. A total of 17 manufacturers had 56 models banned amongst them from being sold and registered in Delhi NCR.
