The compliance with limits or standards of vehicles exhaust emissions for air quality improvement purpose is directly dependent on the implementation or enforcement of effective vehicle inspection system.
Due to the rapid increase in public means of transportation, the improvement of vehicle performance capability and servicing becomes an ever increasing urgency. 
An effective air pollution control and thus, a decrease of vehicles emissions, improvement of road worthiness can be achieved by the implementations of an effective vehicle inspection system. With the fast growing economy, the vehicle population in India has grown rapidly. The Government of India enforced the motor vehicle emission standards in India from year 1991 and has been since updating the emission and safety norms for new vehicles.
Each prototype vehicle is subjected to extensive laboratory testing for the design approval called Type approval, before these are introduced in the market. Thereafter, the vehicles produced by the vehicle manufacturer are randomly selected from the production line and subjected to emission performance test and verified against the type approval, called as 'Conformity of Production".
