New Delhi: Motorists who don’t have a valid pollution certificate will henceforth not be able to renew the insurance of their vehicles, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday in a move to cut down on air pollution.

A bench led by Justice Madan B Lokur issued a direction to all insurance companies to ensure polluting vehicles stay off the roads.

The bench also ordered for an all-India real-time online system for Pollution Under Control (PUC) centres to check any manipulation while granting pollution certificates.
