Technically yes. Any new vehicle will be certified as "Emission Tested OK" by the manufacturer and it holds good for the first year.

Are you sure about this ? I thought so too but when I took delivery of a new scooter couple days ago, the dealership folks mentioned that the new vehicle's PUC is only valid for 6 months.
Not sure if this is only in Karnataka and for 2 wheelers (but 1 year validity for cars ?)
EDIT:The sticker only has date of sale, no validity date!

Came across this on the Karnataka RTO's website - you can actually enter your vehicle number and get the history of all Pollution checks done for the vehicle

Finally got the PUC done for the Punto at the same location as mentioned after a talk with the bunk owner. The whole process took about 15 mins and costed me Rs 120/- . While I was doing the PUC, a couple of MUV & SUV too enquired if they can get their vehicles tested but the technician flatly refused to do the same for bigger vehicles. The reason was insufficient parking to carry out the PCU testing.

I heard somewhere that for BS-IV vehicles PUC is valid for one year? True or false, and if true some link to the notification.

The validity is one year. Gazette notification by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways published 23 Feb 2012 is attached (PDF).

The stupidity of the rule is the fixed date of APril 1st, 2010 irrespective of BS4 compliance. I bought my Swift P, K Series, BS4 in Feb 2010 and the registration date is Mar 29, 2010. This rule means my car is not eligible for 1 year PUC!!

It is such a waste of time, resources and money to get PUC every 3 months. The govt. needs to introduce car fitness tests similar to western markets instead of juct checking for pollution and also relax the PUC norms for all BS4 vehicles!

The P.U.C. is always asked by cops from car owners . This is when almost every car is at least Euro 2 compliant.No one will ask for such certificate from state transport authority buses. which are always overloaded.
Every one knows how these commercial vehicles get their P.U.C.
The vehicle is parked close to computer,its photo taken and then without even inserting the smoke sensor ,the certificate is printed out with pre determined readings. And in this way even the most polluting buses and trucks obtain their P.U.C.

That's how it works for cars these days in NCR!

Our current PUC system here is a fraud unlike Chennai (Adyar, Ganesh fuels, to be precise!!)

Since I came to Delhi in April, all my FOUR PUCs (at different points in Gurgaon and Delhi) for my diesel swift have not even hooked up a sensor to the car's tail pipe, much less measure anything.

They should clean up this crappy system asap. They should also check 100% of buses and trucks and commercial vehicles, and fine even trucks passing delhi if they are visibly polluting. Maybe that'll help Delhi CM in his pollution goals more!

Is this true for 2 wheelers also? It's a pain to get PUC done every 3 months. I read the notification, but couldn't find the mention of 2 wheelers

I got PUC done in Haryana for a Delhi number plate car, the guy doing it said its all good and can be done anywhere in India irrespective of registration state.

Want to double check on that to be sure. Any pointers?

Yes, the PUC is valid all over the country.
In fact, it's better you get it done in your home city+state these days as it also serves as proof when there are checks for out of state cars being used in another state and the question of state road tax payments comes up.

Am quite surprised to read this but specifically w.r.t. Dilli PUC centres.

For starters not all PUC centres are authorised to carry out the test for diesel vehicles, only certain specific centres have the required machines for that and at least in the South and Central Dilli areas PUC procedure at all centres that I have frequented has been quite thorough

Which centres in Dilli have you had this experience at?

Nobody is bothered about PUC in Chennai; you can be on a vehicle belching smoke, halt it near a traffic cop and ask for directions! I have never once been stopped on the road and checked for it in all these years. So much so, even I have stopped bothering about it now. I maintain my car and bike diligently, so what the hell!

1. Can't recall now. I'll get it done over the coming weekend and let you know.
2. in Chennai (Adyar, Ganesh testing center) - they would diligently rev it across the range. In Delhi the best has been to simply connect it and let the car idle.

Every time I've renewed my multiple petrol/diesel vehicle PUCs, Bangalore centers have diligently tested them. This was especially true for my diesels where the test takes around 15 minutes and the 'Pass' message comes automatically via SMS too.

Bangaloreans beware! Any day the NGT or HCoK will wield the hatchet in BLR asking whether all relevant vehicles are PUC-equipped or not. I am very sure the majority of people do not even know about PUC much less diligently renew them.

I foresee long long queues at these testing centers soon :-)
