Tayang, in the presence of MVI Abujing Pertin, OC In-charge Roing PS J. Miso, MO Koronu CHC M. Tomba Singh and PUC Roing branch staff. The centre has been opened by the North East Environment Engineer & Consultant (NEEEC), a government authorised agency, at Meka.

While speaking on the occasion, DTO S.

So it is mandatory for every vehicle owner to have a valid PUC certificate to comply with the prescribed emission norms. He added that any vehicle without such certificate is liable to be prosecuted under the motor vehicle act.
