To tackle the rising air pollution levels, the Delhi government prepared a draft policy for making Pollution Under Control Certificates (PUCC) mandatory to refuel at fuel pump stations in the city.

"To control vehicular tailpipe emissions, all the dealers of the petrol, diesel, CNG pumps are directed to dispense and sell the petrol, diesel, and CNG to motor vehicles only on production of valid Pollution under Control Certificate (PUCC) with immediate effect", reads Delhi Gazette notifications published on March 4.

The Delhi government had announced in January that the government will soon make pollution-under-control certificates (PUCC) mandatory to refuel at vends in the city, in a bid to tackle the city`s crippling air pollution levels, much of which is caused by vehicles.

The Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate is an important instrument for vehicles issued through registered PUC centers to control vehicular tailpipe emissions and is crucial in monitoring vehicular pollution and certifying the fitness of vehicles as per emission norms, the notification reads.

According to the draft notification, the draft policy will be taken into consideration by the Delhi Lieutenant Governor on or after the expiry of 60 days from the date of publication of this notification in the Official Gazette.
