It is written on the e-challan issued that the electric scooter owner has been imposed under the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 for not presenting the Pollution Control Certificate i.e. PUC. Yes, it sounds strange but now it is happening with electric scooter users too. After this news went viral on social media, Tarun Mehta, CEO of Ather Energy himself also commented and called it ‘unfortunate’.

Let us tell you that PUC can be issued only to internal combustion engine ie IC engine vehicles. Vehicles that do not have engines running on petrol, diesel or CNG do not require PUC. Battery operated electric vehicles fall under the category of non IC engine vehicles, which are not issued PUC.

If in such a situation the traffic police fines an electric vehicle for not presenting the PUC then it is illegal. Many social media users have given information about some similar cases with him as well. In a similar case, a bike driver was fined by the Kerala Police just because his bike was low on fuel.
