India may keep back imports of used cars by imposing severe safety and emission norms, according to the Indian newspaper, The Economic Times. It is reported that the plan is under consideration by the government. The proposed new rules would mean that imported cars must be less than five years old, should be right-hand drive and ought to comply with current emission norms in the country. Currently, India bans imports of used cars, with the exception of returning nationals bringing back cars used overseas.
