A recent RTI (Right to Information) response clearly establishes that Gujarat Traffic Police are not authorized by Pollution Control Board (authority to issue PUC for vehicles) to check P.U.C. of the vehicles. Please download this post and keep in handy in case you are extorted money by Traffic Police for not having or expired P.U.C.
Please note that this is only applicable for State of Gujarat and similar response can be generated for other state by raising RTI query at respective locations. Please file an RTI, it’s just a small investment of your time for better good of entire state residents.
– many thanks to Shri Hitendrakumar J Patel for raising this RTI & to my friend Vishal for sharing this on WhatsApp.
Note: The RTI response image shown above has been received on WhatsApp and I don’t guarantee authenticity of the content. However, by logical thinking, I agree with the content of the post and will suggest people to comment on this if they find it useful/ untrue.
