As per the Motor Vehicle Act, if a vehicle is caught without a valid PUC certificate, its owner may face imprisonment of up to six months or a fine of up to 10,000 or both. According to Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, every motor vehicle is required to carry a valid PUC certificate after the expiry of period of one year from the date of its first registration. This include BS-I, BS-II, BS-III, BS-IV, CNG and LPG vehicles as well. The validity of four-wheeled BS-IV compliant vehicles is one year and for other vehicles, it is three months.

Vehicles are periodically tested for their emission standards for various pollutants such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide after which they are given PUC certificates. The PUC certification has been made real-time and integrated with the vehicle registration database. In 2021, with strict enforcement of PUC norms, the Delhi transport department issued more than 60 lakh certificates.
