Sector:Transport Undertaken By:The Energy and Resource Institute Year Published:2016

India's current Inspection and Maintenance (I&M) programme for in-use vehicles currently focuses on Pollution Under Control (PUC) certification for private vehicles and fitness tests for commercial vehicles. Shakti is supporting efforts to strengthen the design and implementation of the I&M programme. An important outcome of this research is the development of a position paper that recommends changes to the current testing procedures and the institutional framework needed for the more improved implementation and monitoring of the programme. The recommendations have been detailed further to specify the changes needed in the PUC and fitness testing regime.
