PUC tests a necessity for Indian vehicles
PUC tests are a necessity for Indian vehicles with the increasing number of vehicles on our roads. It helps keep a check on pollutants and take corrective action to limit pollution levels.
It is vital for drivers to possess a ‘pollution under control’ certificate while commuting on Indian roads. Failure to produce a PUC certificate once your vehicle has completed a year since being bought can attract a severe penalty. Continuous monitoring with help of these PUC tests will enable one to check their vehicle for pollutants like CO2, hydrocarbons and other elements which are harmful to the environment.
These tests will help regulate level of pollutants being emitted into the atmosphere and thereby keep them within permissible limits. Centers need to be upgraded and opened at locations to facilitate such screening and help reduce emissions. Corruption within these centers needs to be eradicated so as to provide a foolproof way for one to check their vehicles with ease.
