The city government was today asked by the Delhi High Court to chalk out a plan for conducting a drive to check if the vehicles plying in the national capital are complying with emission norms and have valid pollution under control (PUC) certificates.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice B D Ahmed and Justice S Mridul passed the order while hearing a plea seeking strict implementation of the provisions for PUC certification to improve the air quality in the city.

“The Transport Department of Government of NCT Delhi is to chalk out a plan to ensure that all vehicles plying in Delhi carry the PUC certification. Due notice will be given to public through advertisements,” the bench said and sought a status report on the issue by the next date of hearing in May this year.
