At least twice a year, Shrivardhan Kanoria comes out on the streets of Kolkata with his prized possession — a Renault AX from 1908. One of the occasions to bring out the vehicle he inherited from his father is, of course, the annual vintage car rally in city. The Renault AX has led the rally for decades and Kanoria has been enthusiastically carrying on the tradition. Kanoria, however, is apprehensive that the January 2017 vintage car rally may well have been the last of the series English daily The Statesman had first flagged off in Kolkata in 1968. The doubts on whether the 50th edition will run its course are because vintage cars may soon be off the roads — along with all other vehicles that are older than 15 years. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the Delhi government to ban these vehicles and other large cities may be their next targets.
