“Pollution Under Control” or PUC is an important document that car/bike owners and drivers should have with them at all times. As the name suggests, the PUC certificate is a document that certifies that a vehicle’s emission levels comply with prescribed emission standards. These emission levels are mainly decided by the country’s transport department.
What are the conditions for obtaining a PUC certificate?
In addition to the driver’s license, vehicle insurance and vehicle registration papers (RC), users must have the PUC certificate to complete their documentation. With the increasing levels of pollution in our country, the emphasis is on scrutinizing a vehicle’s suitability for driving on the road. In the country’s capital, Delhi, runners traveling without the PUC can even be fined Rs 10,000 or more. In fact, the capital government plans to send notices to all vehicle owners who do not have a valid PUC.
The first step you will need to take is to go to a government approved pollution control center. There, one of the executives will insert a stick-like device into your vehicle’s exhaust pipe and ask you to turn on the engine. Once you have done this they will check the emissions readings to verify if the car meets the emission standards. Once the test is done, the user can either request a copy of the PUC or download it online.
How to download PUC online
The government offers vehicle owners an easy way to upload their PUC online. This allows car or bike owners to keep track of their app and then download the PUC.
First, you need to go to the Parivahan Sewa website. There you will see a PUC option on the tab. Click on it. Then you will be asked to enter the vehicle registration number and the last five digits of the chassis number. Additionally, you will need to enter the captcha code.
Once you submit it, you will be able to see the status of your PUC. The PUC can be downloaded if it is still valid. If you have applied for it, it will also indicate the status of your application and once the PUC is available, you can simply download and print it to complete your package of documents.
