Three car scrappage plans have been approved by the parliament, which will hopefully be implemented, secretary of the Association for Scrappage and Recycling Centers said.
“For the past six years, the issue of worn-out cars was neglected and car scrappage centers in the country remained idle and are operating at 10% of their capacity. We had proposed many plans to the previous government, but unfortunately none of them was implemented,” Amir Ahmadi was also quoted as saying by the Persian daily Etemad.
“In the fiscal 2014-15, about 320,000 cars were scrapped, which year was a golden period for car scrappage centers. But after that, six years of investments in this sector were completely ruined.”
