The Delhi government has increased the Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate charges for petrol, CNG, and diesel vehicles after 13 years, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot announced on Thursday.

Charges for petrol, CNG, or LPG (including bio fuel) two and three-wheelers have risen from Rs 60 to Rs 80, while four-wheelers will now pay Rs 110 instead of Rs 80.

For diesel vehicles, PUC certification charges have been updated from Rs 100 to Rs 140. The new rates will take effect upon notification by the government.

The Delhi government is dedicated to maintaining the city's air quality and ensuring all vehicles meet required pollution standards, Gahlot said. The price increase aligns with a long-pending request from the Delhi Petrol Dealers Association to address the rising costs of pollution checking services.

Gahlot noted that this adjustment is essential for pollution checking stations to operate efficiently and provide high-quality services to the public. The association had last month met with Gahlot to push for a revision of the rates.
