The PUC certificate of vehicles is a topic that is frequently discussed these days because of the approaching winter season and rising pollution. Winter is also a time of increased pollution. Additionally, there are more accidents happening now.
Vehicles are being ticketed in the meanwhile for lacking a pollution certificate. However, another erroneous rumour that vehicles cannot obtain insurance if they do not have pollution certificates spread in the interim. By fact-checking it, PIB has shown that it is untrue.
News Verdict: Thus, based on the above fact check, it can be concluded that the viral post is false.
