Electric scooter owner penalized for not having a pollution certificate
Netizens are concerned over the images of the Challan imposed on an electric scooter owner. The owner was penalized for not having a Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate, despite the fact that electric scooters are introduced just for reducing air pollution.
Reportedly, a driver without a Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate was fined by the traffic police for operating an Ather electric scooter. Currently, this incident is hot topic of discussion, and everyone is talking about it.
The electric scooter’s photo and an official Challan receipt went viral on social media and is being circulated at the speed of the light.
The picture of the Challan receipt for the Ather electric scooter clearly shows that the Pollution Under Control Certificate was not issued on demand. The owner of the electric scooter would be fined a total of Rs 250 under Section 213(5)(e) of the Motor Vehicle Act of 1988.
Anand Mahindra’s Reaction
In a recent tweet, Anand Mahindra shared the images and referred to them as the “biggest challenge” the electric vehicle sector is facing in India. In a sarcastic manner, he said,
“And you thought the biggest challenge to going electric was charging infrastructure?”

The CEO of Ather, Tarun Mehta, also commented with a “sigh” in response to one of the posts.
The whole situation created a buzz over the internet and the fact that the pollution certificate is not needed for electric vehicles, it quickly went viral online. The PUC certifications are only necessary for vehicles that create fumes. These certifications are essential for vehicles with internal combustion engines that use fossil fuels.
Let’s see if rules get changed in future.
