Do you have a valid pollution under control (PUC) certificate for your car or the two-wheeler? If not, then you had better queue up at the pollution check centre nearest to your place and get emissions level checked.

Starting Friday, the enforcement teams of Delhi government’s transport department would be stationed all across the Capital, checking PUC certificates of commercial as well as private vehicles.

The vehicles found plying without valid PUC certificates would be fined and may even be impounded, a transport department official said.

“We are deploying 30 enforcement teams, which will have equipment to check emission levels on the spot,” said Delhi transport minister Arvinder Singh Lovely.

Senior transport department officials said these teams would be stationed especially along the roads that connect the national capital region (NCR) towns of Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida, Ghaziabad, Sonepat and other areas.

In a high-level meeting last week, CM Sheila Dikshit had expressed her concern about vehicular pollution during the Commonwealth Games and emphasised checking emission levels of vehicles from NCR.
