PUC Query for new vehicles

Recommended Posts

Pollution Under Check

 

Does a new vehicle come with a PUC validity?
How soon is a PUC  for a new vehicle required?

Is a brand new vehicle also considered without a PUC and can be challaned?

 

The reason why is am asking this question, is that, there is again a new drive in Delhi , this time for PUCs, everywhere you go you can see serpentile queue for getting PUC done, as first i confused it with another round of sudden price hike , the queue was that long

 

Anyone with any inputs are welcome to respond.

For Brand new cars/bikes confirming to BS-pollution standards, upto 2 years No PUC is required, afterthat its needed after every 6 months.

Regarding your local region, better is to confirm from Local Traffic(Delhi) Police itself to avoid complications.

This is something I never heard from anyone. But may be it is true.

 

 

 

 

However, I remember when we bought our M800 in 2007 the Apra Auto delear told us then that PUC exemption is valid for first month and after that we need to go for PUC.

Same was being told by Rana motor this time when we bought Ritz Ldi in March 2012.

So I am not sure which brands are having this long exemption.

Delhi government will launch a mega drive tomorrow to crackdown on

motorists who do not have a valid pollution under control (PUC)

certificate for their vehicles.

Thirty teams of enforcement wing of Transport department will carry out the drive which will continue till June 18.

If a motorist does not have a PUC certificate and if he is first time

offender, then a fine of Rs 1,000 will be imposed while the fine amount

will be Rs 2,000 in case of second time offenders.

TOI on 10th Jun

The new car doesn't need a PUC for its first yr, after which you need to renew every 3 months( Yes, in our area we get renewed certificates for 3 months only as against 6 months earlier)

@ankur

After the expiry of period of one year from the date of first registration, every motor vehicle is required to carry a valid PUC Certificate & subsequently after every three months.

Though i have a doubt whether there is some change to this 1 yr time period rule in case of diesel vehicles or not.

Please see below link.

Central Motor Vehicle Rule 115(7) is very clear about PUC. It states:

A New vehicle(be it Diesel or Petrol) doesn't reqire PUC certificate for one year from the date of first registration of vehicle and thereafter it require PUC at a interval specified by state government. For example in Maharashtra this interval is 6 months. PUC is valid across India.

 

Hope it clears all the doubt on PUC.

Thank you all for your replies.

 

So ,  what does one show the traffic cops if they pull me up for the same considering I have no PUC on me as it is a new car , I have no RC as it takes nearly three months for getting it made for a new car as a natural process

 

So the only thing that i can possibly show them , is my car purchase papers and my insurance papers .

 

 @sachin

 

Great find , thank you.

Maybe true.

But i've heard of 2 years earlier, that's why followed & written it.

Will confirm it again.

Ashikawa seems to be correct here. smiley32.gif

It is ONE YEAR from the date of issue of FORM 22 by the car's manufacturer. This FORM 22 is given to the buyer as a part of the set of documents given by the Manufacturer/ Dealer. Unless this form is also submitted to the RTAO, they will not register the new vehicle. That Form 22 also clearly indicates all the rules and regulations that govern this.

PUC validity for new cars is 1 year now

If you have bought your car or two-wheeler after March 31, 2010, you will not have to queue up to get the emission level check of your vehicle every three months.

While making emission norms stringent for all vehicles manufactured to conform to Bharat Stage 4 (BS4) -- and registered on or after April 1, 2010 -- the ministry of road transport and highways has increased the validity of pollution under control certificate to 12 months.

Vehicles registered before April 1, 2010, however, will continue to get emission level checked and obtain pollution under control (PUC) certificates every three months.

The new rule is likely to benefit almost 14 lakh vehicle owners who bought their vehicles between April 1, 2010 and December 31, 2012. The new arrangement will come into effect from February 23.

According to the ministry officials, a gazette notification was issued on February 23, 2012. The ministry, however, had given one year to all states to upgrade the equipment at pollution checking centres.

Delhi’s transport department officials said in the first year of the purchase of the vehicle, the owner does not have to get a PUC certificate. However, after the first year, obtaining a PUC certificate every three months was mandatory in Delhi. The validity of the PUC certificate in other states was six months.

Officials said the pollution control centres have been told to follow the new rules. “With the government likely to link the PUC certificate with annual vehicle insurance cover, there is likely to be more people abiding by the law,” a senior transport department official said.
