Pune Introduces Automated System to Enforce PUC Compliance with ₹10,000 Fine

In a bid to curb the menace of vehicles operating without valid Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates, Pune is rolling out an innovative automated system poised to bolster traffic regulations enforcement. This pioneering initiative extends to petrol pumps, where offenders will be promptly penalized for non-compliance.

Stringent Penalties

Vehicles found without a valid PUC certificate risk facing penalties of up to ₹10,000, underscoring the criticality of adhering to emission norms. It is imperative for drivers to ensure the timely renewal of their certificates to avoid potential ramifications, including the blacklisting of vehicle registrations.

Advanced Surveillance Measures

To fortify surveillance capabilities, state-of-the-art cameras will be strategically positioned at fuel stations to meticulously monitor vehicle registration numbers. This surveillance extends to all vehicle categories, irrespective of fuel type, encompassing both gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles. The automated system will meticulously scrutinize the pollution certificate status of each vehicle. Should a certificate be found to be expired, fines will be swiftly dispatched to the driver’s mobile device, ensuring stringent adherence to regulatory mandates.

Timely Renewal Notifications

In an effort to facilitate compliance, drivers will receive timely reminders prompting them to renew their certificates, typically dispatched by the subsequent day or evening. A brief grace period will be extended to allow for certificate renewal. However, failure to adhere to the stipulated timeframe will result in the imposition of a ₹10,000 penalty, directly communicated to the driver’s mobile device.

Promoting Regulatory Compliance

This automated enforcement mechanism is meticulously crafted to ensure the effective enforcement of pollution regulations while affording a grace period for corrective action. By incentivizing drivers to maintain vehicles that meet emission standards, the initiative underscores Pune’s commitment to fostering safer roads through proactive monitoring and robust enforcement measures.

As Pune pioneers the adoption of cutting-edge technologies to bolster regulatory compliance, this automated system stands poised to usher in a new era of environmental stewardship, heralding cleaner and greener urban landscapes for generations to come.
