Government makes shooting videos mandatory for Pollution Certificates, here’s what this means for you – Times of India

Your next visit for a Pollution Certificate for your vehicle will also entail a video shoot. According to new guidelines, the PUC (pollution under check) centres at fuel stations across the country will now have to shoot a small video clip while checking pollution levels of vehicles and upload the same on the central government’s VAHAN portal while issuing the certificate.VAHAN portal is the national register for e-services offered by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH).
Officials said that this has been done following a number of complaints that some PUC centres were issuing Pollution certificates without even checking the vehicles. These complaints, said officials, were received from all states forcing the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways to make the shooting of the video and uploading it on the VAHAN portal compulsory. They added that the National Informatics Centre (NIC) has made the necessary changes in the VAHAN portal to facilitate this. NIC has given access to all PUC centres across the country of the portal to upload videos.
What the rules say
According to Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, every vehicle is required to have a valid PUC certificate after the expiry of a one-year period from the date of its registration. The validity is one year for four-wheeler BS-IV compliant vehicles and three months for others.
Delhi first state to implement the new video guidelines
Delhi is first among all states and Union territories to adopt this video system guidelines completely. “All PUC centres in the capital have started shooting video clips of about 10 seconds duration while checking the pollution levels of all two-wheelers, cars and passenger and commercial vehicles. This video is simultaneously uploaded on the portal,” said an official. The other states and Union territories are expected to follow in the coming days.
