Default Toyota Tsusho & Maruti-Suzuki to jointly set up a high-end vehicle scrappage unit

Maruti-Toyota venture will be the second big automobile JV to work on a high-end vehicle scrappage plant in India.


As the government works out a scrappage policy for older vehicles in India, Maruti Suzuki has decided to set up a old vehicles dismantling plant along with a subsidiary of Toyota.

The venture between Maruti and Toyota Tsusho India will supply, dismantle and process end-of-life vehicles, and market and sell scrap and other products generated from such activities, sources told TOI. In doing so, the Maruti-Toyota venture will be the second big automobile JV to work on a high-end vehicle scrappage plant in India, following the footsteps of Mahindra & Mahindra (through subsidiary Mahindra Accelo) that has partnered public-sector MSTC. The two have set up a recycling plant at Greater Noida.

Toyota Tsusho is already active in India and is in the manufacturing and trading of auto parts and components, steel shearing and processing, import and export of automobile components and logistics management services. Its Japanese parent Toyota Tsusho Corporation is active in metals, parts and logistics, automotive, machinery, energy and projects, chemicals, electronics, food, and consumer services.

Marutiís parent Suzuki and Toyota have a deeper relationship where they are buying minor equity into each other, apart from working out joint vehicles, engines and new technology plans for India and the global markets.

I just hope going to the scrapper is a term that catches up with the Indian janata, be it at the end of life of a vehicle or for want of salvageable parts.

Recently a friend of mine was in a position to scrap his 2002 Alto. Over the 15years age limit for a petrol vehicle in NCR.
A FNG was quoting INR25k approx. I asked him to check with Mahindra scrap yard near Delhi (https://cerorecycling.com/)
The quote received from mahindra was INR14k.

Finally He sold it to Cars24 for INR 28K. The buyer would use the vehicle for salvage. ( they returned the RC, to be cancelled at RTO by my friend).

My point is: unless these OEM backed scrap yards offer a good deal, people aren’t going to sell their vehicle directly to them.

Crap :(

Why does this make me fear that the no extension beyond 15 year rule will be nationwide rather than just the NCR? Maruti are generally the first to "adhere" to regulations so they wouldn't have set this up unless they saw a vehicle scrapping policy coming soon

Manufacturers would get carbon credit by scrapping older vehicles and earn by selling new ones. The government would need some way to make people start buying new cars again. The NGT etc would be happy because new cars are supposed to be cleaner.

It's the perfect storm for people like me who have vehicles older than 10 years :(

Good initiative, at least now the used car market will be spared from overpriced Alto and Wagon-R.

This is the best news that i read yesterday. Vehicle scrappage needs to catch-up fast in our country. Now that Maruti has jumped-in, we can be sure that something big is on its way.

Both OEMs and Government need to work together on such initiatives. OEMs can provide the necessary infrastructure, and Government can back it up with policies that make Scrappage attractive. We have millions of 15+ year old active vehicles on our roads and thus the opportunity is huge. This will support the new vehicle industry as well.

Govt to approve vehicle scrappage policy soon : Link

...proposes discarding vehicles older than 15 years...
This is abit sad, instead of pushing auto industry to make better vehicles that can endure the poor infrastructure & long term reliable usage requirements of our country (while now aims to develop itself by being an efficient manufacturing & export driven economy), and instead of helping extract somewhat meaningful value out of that heavily under-utilized asset (in the average Indian household), Govt is instead incentivising it's planned obsolescence !?

Wonder why the Govt doesn't care first to pass a stern law against lemon cars & dodgy practices at dealerships sales & service centres ?

Imagine, half the country (where the people can barely afford) will be forced to buy a new vehicle every 15 years.
