‘Insurance can be proof of BS-III 2-wheelers sale’

The Delhi High Court has told the Transport Department here that while verifying the date of sale of BS-III two-wheelers before registration, it should take into account the dates of online payment of insurance premium or issuance of insurance certificate. The order comes as relief for dealers who had sold BS-III two-wheelers before March 31, the deadline set by the Supreme Court for sale and registration of such vehicles, but weren’t able to get them registered as the department wasn’t accepting documents after the date set by the apex court.
