EPCA plans system to trace vehicles failing in pollution checks

The Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) is planning a system to check the irregularities in maintaining the records of the vehicles failing in pollution checks. Under this, PUC centers will take fees ahead of the pollution checks.    

EPCA has suggested this plan in the court. If this comes into force, the vehicles with emissions more than the permissible limit will be easily traced. It will also be easier to take action against the violators as their address can be accessed from the system.

According to EPCA, currently, the number of vehicles failing in pollution checks is very less in the records of PUC centers. Hardly, 2-5 per cent of vehicles fail in the pollution checks which is far away from real figures.

During the investigation, it came to the fore that the owners of the vehicles failing in the pollution checks do not pay to the PUC centers. PUC centers usually inform the owners of the vehicles in advance that their vehicles may fail in pollution checks.
