Govt notifies draft rules for setting up Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility

Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has notified draft rules for setting up Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility (RVSF).  The rules lay down the procedure for setting up, authorization and operation of RVSF.
These RVSFs shall be provided access to the VAHAN database and shall be authorized to make entries regarding scrapping of the vehicle and issuance of Scrapping Certificate.
Other access to NCRB and police database will also be provided for verification of stolen vehicle or vehicle involved in criminal activity, before scrapping a vehicle. The rules specify the technical requirements and procedure to be followed by any legal entity for setting up RVSF. Government will develop a portal for single window clearance, on which the applicant will apply with documents and fee. State and UT governments would clear the proposal in a time-bound manner within 60 days.
The RVSF must take cyber security certifications for safe access to VAHAN database. The registration of an RVSF shall be valid for an initial period of 10 years, and renewable for 10 years at a time.
