Unhappy Pumps Issuing PUC Certificates for Diesel Cars.

This might seem like a trivial thread. But my experience over the past fortnight has been so bad that I think such a handy list would be useful.
Scenario: Wanted to get a PUC done for my Swift VDI. Piece of cake, I thought, until I started doing rounds of petrol pumps to get it done. Almost 8-10 pumps refused to issue a PUC for diesel saying that it takes longer to test a diesel car so they generally dont do it. AFAIK, kool kid on the forum is facing the same issue

Anyways, I think it was the tenth pump that finally offered me a PUC. The only other option is that you get it done from your service center which is not always the most convenient.

Request you guys to please list down all the pump where you that definitely issue PUCs for diesel cars. Please list only those pumps which you are very sure will do it. Lots of them have boards displaying that they do, but actually don't do it.

My list for Delhi guys.:

1- Dwarka Sector 9 - IOC Pump- Hundred Percent filling station. (it also has a MASS by the same name._

2- Rohini: IOC/ IBP Pump. Between the Rohini west metro station and the Japanese park gate.


Please add to it. Thanks

It is a very pertinent thread , Eddy.
Had the same problem for my Indica in Chennai, finally found one. Not sure how many others are available in CHE.

My lone entry (for a diesel)

1) IOC bunk a.k.a Kamadhenu on TTK road/Alwarpet junction.

For petrols

1) BP on St.Mary's Road
2) BP near Malar Hospital in Adyar

They come up with excuses saying that machine is not working, while the truth is that they would rather do 3 petrol cars in the time it takes for one diesel car.
Hell, I don't even know if there are different machines that are used.

I dont think thats the real reason as I see them sitting idle mostly.

The machines used are different for petrol and diesel as their parameters of measurements are also different.

Yeah, we do, if your car is new the attitude of the Police is typically chalta hai, but in case you get pulled over to the side for god knows what, it is better to carry a PUC certificate.

When you buy the car , the certificate or sticker from the company is only valid for 6 months, so according to the rules you need to do a check every 6 months even for a "new" car.

The machines might be different but this is also one of the reasons. I could see that the time took for each diesel car was 8-10 min. And a couple of petrol ones turned away not wanting to wait. Hence the guys are reluctant to take on diesel cars, at least during the peak hours.
