    Regulate PUC centres in my city: Renuka Kumar
    Picture this. You’re stuck at a signal in an autorickshaw with your daughter. An old, highly polluting car pulls over next to you. At that moment, you quickly cover your daughter’s nose. And under your breath, you curse the driver and wonder why the car is still running. And then you think out loud, “How did this car clear the pollution test?” Yes, let’s talk about a problem that we see quite often in our cities: shoddy pollution under check (PUC) centres. I’m sure most of you -- vehicle owners -- like me have visited such a centre at least once. Our vehicles have been certified to be non-polluting or minimal polluting without following a proper process. Sometimes turning a blind eye is easier. Yes, most of us are sometimes guilty for not speaking out. “Fake certificate? It’s fine. My vehicle isn’t polluting anyway!” But this is where the problem lies. We need to ensure that due process is followed, even if we are clean. And hence we now need to take responsibility. Whenever we come across a fraudulent PUC centre, ask them to follow due diligence. At the same time, let’s ask our state pollution control board to strictly regulate these centres. Our hope is to ensure that highly polluting vehicles do not run on our street and endanger our children’s lives. But this is possible only when you take that first step. http://indianexpress.com/article/india/epca-report-on-capitals-pucs-data-from-puc-system-is-virtually-unusable-4654668/ http://www.newindianexpress.com/cities/hyderabad/2017/may/07/did-you-know-your-vehicles-puc-certificate-is-bogus-1602049.html https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/gurgaon/3-mobile-puc-centres-issue-fake-clearances/articleshow/57009955.cms http://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi-news/vehicular-pollution-check-continues-to-be-sham-even-as-delhi-chokes-on-foul-air/story-usQ505pNJsmo40cLYEFNLP.html https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/ppcb-teams-find-100-vehicular-pollution-check-centres-violating-norms/articleshow/60008030.cms
