Vehicle Insurance Renewal: Mandatory Requirement of PUC Certificate

The Supreme Court of India on Thursday passed a law under which all the Delhi-NCR vehicle owners will now have to compulsorily provide with PUC (Pollution-under-Control) certificate if they wished to renew their vehicle insurance.

Why is this rule imposed?

The rule has been enforced as part of one of the initiatives of curbing pollution. As per reports, the air-pollution in the national capital was rising at an alarming state. A preventive measure was hence considered and this decision has been reached in a court case.

Reports state that there were oppositions on the implementation of the rule from the Centre on the basis that PuC checks are done in intervals during the year while renewal of the insurance is an annual affair. However, it was later decided that the vehicle owner can furnish either of the last four or two PUC certificates to apply for the renewal.

What would be the impact of the directive?

After the implementation of this directive, it is expected that all vehicle owners who seek to renew their insurance will submit the necessary document and assist in the initiative of curbing the air pollution.
