The scrapping policy, with a gamut of incentives/ disincentives, is designed for the creation of an ecosystem to phase out old and unfit polluting vehicles. It is likely to lead to higher growth in the auto and ancillary industries. It would also ensure the availability of rare-earth metals, as also raw materials for the steel industry, etc. The policy is likely to generate more employment with the development of the scrapping ecosystem, and higher growth in the automotive sector.
