"Owners should keep such vehicles in private parking spaces they own, not in shared parking areas, even if they are part of a residential complex. A parking space allotted within a residential complex is considered private," the notice stated.

The Delhi government has deregistered 5.5 million overage vehicles. Owners of these vehicles have the option to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to move the vehicle out of Delhi within one year of its expiry date. However, no NOC will be issued after one year from the vehicle's expiry.

Alternatively, owners can scrap their vehicles through the Voluntary Vehicle Scrapping Application at 'https://vscrap.parivahan.gov.in/' at any nearby registered vehicle scrapping facility.

The notice also mentioned that the enforcement wing of the transport department, New Delhi Municipal Council, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, and Traffic Police may impound vehicles parked in public places, even if an NOC has been issued but the vehicle has not been moved out of Delhi within one month of NOC issuance. Offenders may face prosecution under the 'Guidelines for Handling of End of Life Vehicles 2024'.
