Hi all,

I have tried to research the official government delhi sites, but nowhere have i found a mention of the below mentioned update, anywhere excepts on discussion boards and newspaper clippings. Will a traffic police officer hold this true if one is stopped and found having a PUC beyond 3 months on a car/ two wheeler bought post April 1st, 2010?

Hello - I need to know one thing.

Petrol car with CNG company fitted Kit - Do we require to have two PUC for CNG and Petrol Separately ?

As per my understanding - CNG vehicles are marked as NON POLLUTING VEHICALS IN RC BOOK.

In Gujarat at CNG out lets they enforce you to have two certificates ? Is it correct ?

Thanks.
