In an effort to reduce pollution, the Delhi government has directed vehicle owners to obtain valid pollution under control certificates (PUCC) to avoid strict fines. Penalties include a three-month suspension of the driver's license, a Rs. 10,000 fine, and/or imprisonment of up to three months. The government also plans to send automatically generated e-challans to owners who haven't gotten their vehicles checked for pollution.
