MX6, this is a very good and responsible gesture from your side. This reminds me that my RX's PUC is due, anyway it is a good news for me.

I was once stopped and for checking, I had everything except PUC. I was asked to pay Rs 100, I paid without agruement and collected the receipt. Once I reached home, I was going throught the receipt and the reason mentioned there is "Lane Discipline".

Watch out, next time if the cops ask you to pay the fine for not have the PUC, make sure they mention the same in the receipt as well, am sure they will not.

PUC is only another boon by the Govt to cops to extort money from motorists. Most of us forget to get the PUC every 6 months. Cops can take advantage of that. What about the cops waving away vehicles that emits just like a Rocket?

If it is a brand new vehicle, is it still necessary to get it done every 6 months? For example, mine is 7 months old and I haven't got my PUC done. IIRC, new vehicles don't need PUC for 1 year and after that, it is the usual 6 months.

When you get your PUC done, make an appointment in your mobile phone or outlook express for next date so that it reminds you that your puc is about to expire. You may make note a week before just in case you don't get time.

You can also create task in your mobile phone or outlook which will remind you for all this. Once task is complete, just mark it complete or delete it or you may reschedule it.

That is a totally different dimension and a really nice way of looking at the whole PUC discussion. It's not just the law that should prod us to do certain things but also our own conscience.

Common practices like wearing helmets, seat-belts, lane discipline, speed limit adherence (and now I add PUC checks to it) should not be looked as mere traffic regulations but also things that help us be better drivers and automobile connoisseurs.
