Anand Mahindra tweeted about Challan electric scooter
This incident happened in Kerala. The owner of the electric scooter shared a picture of receiving the challan. It is ridiculous that the traffic police official issued a challan in the name of EV owner for non-existence of PUK certificate. Now, anyone even remotely familiar with EVs should know that these vehicles do not produce tailpipe emissions. As a result, they do not need a PUC certificate. This is why the industry is moving towards electrification in the first place.
