Can you drive your BS3 petrol or BS4 diesel car in Delhi?
Unfortunately, in terms of vehicular movement, the restrictions have only been relaxed for trucks and buses. This means that owners with below BS4 emission norm vehicles, will not be able to drive their cars in Delhi and will have to resort to other modes of commuting. While the ban on BS3 and BS4 cars is expected to be lifted in the coming days after AQI levels continue to improve, the government has not indicated a specific date or timeframe yet. So please do not drive your non-compliant cars in Delhi because it can attract a hefty fine of Rs 20,000.

While GRAP-4 measures may have been relaxed, GRAP-1, 2 and 3 restrictions are still to be followed in Delhi. The Environment minister further said, “I want to request the people of Delhi and North India to remain vigilant. Although there has been improvement in pollution, we still need to be cautious. Before Diwali, the AQI had reached 215, but the carelessness that followed led to an increase in the AQI after Diwali.”
