In the city where the pollution level is increasing day by day. On the other hand, there are thousands of vehicles running on the roads which, despite crossing the limit beyond their time period, are running. Along with this, there are thousands of such vehicles which, despite being unfit, are plying on the roads with a pollution certificate. Because of the certificate, even the police could not take action against them. In such a situation, the effect of the steps taken by the government for pollution is not visible on the ground. In the investigation of NBT, it was revealed that the operators running the Pollution Testing Center make a certificate for a year without checking the vehicle for Rs 100.
Here are the rules for making a certificate
The youth, who is running a pollution check center at a petrol pump in BK Chowk, told that the government has adopted state-of-the-art methods. Under this, a stick is inserted in its silencer during the examination of the vehicle. The vehicle is started for some time. With this, a stick inserted in the silencer sees the level of smoke and pollution. After this a photograph of the vehicle is taken, in which its number is visible. Along with this, it can also be found out that for how many days the certificate of the vehicle can be issued. These days one year certificate is made. The rate of a two wheeler is Rs 80 and that of a car is Rs 100.
this is how the game happens
On the condition of anonymity, an operator said that in order to earn money, some operators make certificates even without proper investigation. For this they charge a hundred rupees more. During the checking of the vehicle, if the vehicle is giving more smoke, then a photo is taken with the number of the vehicle. After this, after starting the car lightly without giving a race, the stick is inserted a little bit inside. This allows the stick to capture much less smoke. If the vehicle is also giving a lot of smoke, then the print is removed by inserting a stick in the silencer of the other vehicle. Many people take out the print without any investigation.
What did the DCP say
DCP Traffic Police Suresh Hooda said that during the checking of the vehicle, the police only checks the validity of the certificate. The police do not have any such device, so that after checking the pollution of the vehicle on the spot, it can be challaned. The pollution department should also check the certificate issuing centers.
