Soon you will need a Pollution Under Control certificate to fill fuel in Delhi
New Delhi, Jan 29: The Delhi government will soon make the Pollution Under Control certificate mandatory for filling fuel at pumps.
Environment Minister, Gopal Rai said the this is a very ambitious policy bring brought by the Arvind Kejriwal government. Delhi faces grave air pollution particularly in the winters. With this policy vehicle owners will have to compulsorily have a PUC with them at the fuelling stations. This would help keep the pollution levels of every single vehicle in Delhi under check from time to time, Rai also added.
He also said that this policy would ensure that polluting vehicles do not ply in Delhi and residents can enjoy fresh air. The policy would be notified after taking into account public opinion and review, he also added.
