PUC on Petrol Pump mandatory: Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Friday said that the government has put on hold the order to carry Pollution Control Test Certificate (PUC) for purchase of fuel. This rule was to come into effect from October 25. Earlier, the Delhi government had announced this rule on 12 October. According to this, without pollution-under-control ie pollution certificate, customers will not get fuel. However, due to the demand of the Petrol Pump Association, the decision has been put on hold for the time being. 

Gopal Rai said, “The Diesel and Petrol Dealers Association has given some suggestions regarding law and order… These will be discussed with the Chief Minister and a decision will be taken after that.” The minister said that at present this order is not being implemented from October 25. The government had earlier asked vehicle owners to mandatorily carry a valid PUCC with them to buy fuel at petrol pumps from October 25. According to the government’s estimate, 28% of the PM 2.5 pollution in Delhi is contributed by the smoke coming from the vehicles.

That is why it is also important to
tell the PUC that the Pollution Under Control Certificate is an approval that the smoke coming out of your vehicle is as per the pollution norms. For this, a certificate is issued to you, which the traffic police can ask for at any time. According to the government, more than 17 lakh vehicles in the national capital do not have valid PUCC. Under Section 190(2) of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1993, vehicle owners who do not possess a valid PUCC can be fined Rs 10,000 or punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to six months, or with both.
