Govt Issues Notification For Retrofitting Of CNG Kits In BS-VI Vehicles

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has suggested that CNG kits be retrofitted into petrol BS6 cars and that diesel engines be replaced with CNG engines in vehicles weighing less than 3.5 tonnes. The announcement also specifies the conditions for type approval for retrofitting. The decision was made to encourage the use of cleaner fuel, since CNG is an environmentally friendly fuel that emits less carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, particulate matter, and smoke than gasoline and diesel engines.

At the moment, CNG and LPG kits can be retrofitted into cars that meet the BS4 emission standards. The idea was developed in conjunction with stakeholders, according to a statement from the ministry. The government has also set a thirty-day deadline for stakeholders to submit their opinions and ideas.

CNG As Alternative Fuel

People are seeking for alternatives to petrol and diesel-powered vehicles as a result of the dramatic increase in fuel costs last year, and CNG has been in high demand recently, particularly in metro centres. Even the government is putting more emphasis on CNG fuel. According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), India currently has 3,500 CNG filling stations spread across 293 cities, up from 1,300 in 143 cities in 2019. This is now expected to grow to 6,000 stations by 2025, and 10,000 stations by 2030.
