Maybe in chennai that is the case. Not in mumbai.

I parked my car next to the PUC place and honked at the guy. He came near me, walk back to his car and gave me the PUC certificate and Rs 90.

All handwritten; none of the fancy digital image thing exists in Mumbai yet.

As per Central Motor Rules, 1989, every motor vehicle (including those conforming to Euro-I/ Euro-II/ Euro-III as well as vehicles plying on CNG/LPG) is required to carry a valid Pollution Under Control (PUC) Certificate after the expiry of period of one year from the date of its first registration. Since you purchased you car recently, it is not required. But after 1 year from the date of registration if you don't have PUC certificate, you will be fined Rs.1000 for the first offence and Rs.2000 everytime after that.

OT My Matiz is on border level when checked last time and Petrol Innova was showing almost ZERO reading so had to accelerate a bit to show some reading in the certificate.

This happened to me as well in the Goa Karnataka border. the Goan police were asking for it. My civic is 1.5 years now, and I did not have one. Somehow said its Euro 4 and went ahead. Later got it checked in Karwar.

But I have no idea about the law.

Default Pollution Check Required?

I have a Gujarat registered new diesel car and was bought on 21st May 2008. I plan to drive through Maharastra and Andhra Pradesh. I did not get any pollution check done. Is it required? Please advise what I should do?

According to what little I know of the law, I think for cars you don't need a check for the first one year. After the one year you need to get a pollution check every six months.

However, just to be on a safer side, get a PUC done before you leave. It's not gonna cost you much and at least you will have peace of mind instead of arguing with cops in case you get caught.

A new car will already have the pollution check sticker with a valid till date. If it does not have it then get it done.

Boss, get one! The 60 odd bucks spent will save you trying to convince a MH or AP highway cop that your new car doesn't need one :-)

Get one done. Law may say one thing, but cops won't listen. In the end what matters is the policeman's whims.
Thats why in my brand new safari, I carry pollution check certificate

A cop stopped me driving a 16 year old M800.

No seatbelts. Well the car is exempt because its old. (not sure about this, but the cops agreed)

No PUC. The fitness certificate was less than 6 months old. My argument that it is issued only if the car can pass the PUC. Worked.

Actually the car did have the PUC. I was not able to find it at that point of time.

Ideally new car\bike does not need PUC check for first 6 months but if you are travelling get one it hardly costs anything but will give you peace of mind

PUC for All new cars in valid only for first 3 months, you have to get it done after that. This is what Hyundai guys told me and they are 100% sure of that. Rest RTO knows
