Vehicle pollution booths are an eye wash

Vehicle pollution booths in Delhi

I came across this article in HT by Soumya Pillai which stated that 95% of the pollution check booths across Delhi are unable to conduct actual test and just hand out certificates. This does not come as any surprise as we have been getting these test for the last 10 years but see many vehicles on the roads still polluting heavily. The bigger question here is that, these test are just to collect money for the transport ministry? So they do any good to check the pollution of the city (clearly not) and if so then why do we have to pay for these test over and over again?
