That's very crude but then what else can one expect from a Mahindra workshop.

Here in NCR majority of the PUC work is done at fuel stations. The operator asks one to hold the RPM at different levels like idling and then @ 2000, 2500 and 3000 IIRC. They never get in to the vehicle unless the driver/owner is unable to hold the RPM and that is rare.

BTW thanks to this thread, I remembered that my Swift's PUC had lapsed and got it reissued, the driver took all of 20 minutes and 90/- bucks to get it validated for another three months.

The other rides being post 2010 registered need to be tested only once in 12 months.

This is how it was done in my Scorpio.
I dont have the heart to take my Yeti to these blighted plumbers to mess with.

Is it? Have been seeing for quite a few years in Delhi, the PUC validity here is 3 months only.

I have heard of this kind of testing method for the PUC but never seen it being done in Hyderabad.

Here it is just idling for 1-2 minutes and the results are printed with the vehicle details and registration plate picture as a proof.

Revving the engine as you say is detrimental and harm causing than saving the environment moreover revving the engine that way it is polluting the environment.

I feel there must be an Standard SOP given to the pollution checking vans/centers at fuel stations all over India.

This PUC test is done near the Indian Oil Bunk in HSR Layout in Bangalore, not the M&M workshop.

I got it done last in 2011 when I sold off my Scorpio. The experience was really crude to say the least. Exactly as described in the earlier post.

I have not yet had it done on my Yeti because I cannot condone this abusive method of checking the PUC and I would much rather pay the fines for not having a PUC than subject my vehicle to this sort of nonsense.

As of last year PUCs for vehicles registered before & up to 31st March 2010 is 3/6 months varying from one state to other as has been in the past.

For all vehicles registered on or after April 1st 2010 the validity of the PUC is 12 months from the date of issuance of the certificate. This is standard cross the country.

Revving the engine replicates the real time driving conditions. The idea being to capture the readings as close to the state the engine would be in when in use on the road.

You could do it the way we do it here, that is revving the engine and holding the RPM ourselves per the PUC guy's request for the time it takes the equipment to capture data.

Are you certain about this? I just got the PUC certificate for my 2012 registered car, here in Kerala and its validity is only for 6 months. When I asked the lady, who gave me the certificate, she said that they didn't receive any such notification from the government.

Having a PUC is very much important, else you are fined Rs 1000 by traffic police in Navi Mumbai.

I hope you are not confused with the PUC certificate given when the car is new which is valid for 12 months (Standard), but once the age of the car crosses 12 months then on it is 6 months validity.

Its based on communication I had with Mahindra Service center, but somehow that post got deleted, or the app at iPad has a bug.

The link seems specific to Delhi only. Anyone knows if this rule has been implemented across the country? Would be very helpful for the numerous people who go to get pollution checked every six months.

Exactly, I have tried looking at the AP RTO website and nothing of such has been mentioned nor are the policemen informed about this BS 4 law.

Lets wait till concrete all Indian information is circulated.

Guys are you aware of the fact that Traffic Police have no authority to demand a PUC from Vehicle Owners ? I heard this from a Taxi Driver when I was in Rajkot.

How true is this ? I could have saved lot of money years ago :P

I am surprised. Either you are mis-informed or the dealer is ignorant (unless the vehicle we are talking here is a pre-owned one). In fact, all new vehicles, 2 or 4 wheelers, come with a one year pollution certificate from the manufacturer itself. They don't need to obtain any other PUC until one year of purchase. Then after, every 6 months.

Where is the question of "signed and stamped by the dealer"? The Rules clearly state that "after the expiry of one year from the date on which the motor vehicle was first registered....". The Registration Date is clearly mentioned on the RC which should suffice IMHO.
