The central government is cracking down on those who violate vehicle pollution standards. Are bringing a new system from January next year. Where PUC certificate is no longer available, vehicle registration certificate i.e. RC will be confiscated.
The Ministry of Road Transport has also issued a notification in this regard through a draft on November 27, inviting suggestions from other stakeholders before making the PUC system online. The process will be completed in the next two months.
People familiar with the development said that according to the new system, information about the vehicle owner will be uploaded on the servers connected to the motor vehicle database. Thus it will be very difficult for people to continue using their own vehicles without PUC certification.
Vehicle users will have to provide their mobile number, on the basis of which they will get a one-time password (OTP). The center will be able to generate a form only after providing an OTP to the working user. Which will reduce the chances of foul play.
According to the proposed system, it will be mandatory to renew the PUC of the vehicle within the stipulated time. If users do not see a legitimate PUC certificate being carried, they will be given 7 days. Failure to obtain a valid certificate within this period will result in Wow RC being confiscated.
At most, officers can also inspect their own vehicles if they are found to be emitting excessive fumes. Users will be given 7 days to order their vehicles. This rule will also apply to commercial vehicles in India.
Steps are being taken to control the level of air pollution. Which have reached dangerous levels in the last few weeks. Delhi’s air quality returned to poor range on Saturday.
