The New Delhi government implemented a ban on the retro fitment of CNG kits on June 20 2016. The transport department directed its motor licensing officers MLOs to not to register vehicles that have been retrofitted with CNG kits till further orders.
The directive was issued as several unapproved and uncertified CNG systems had entered the market but much to the relief of many Delhi motorists it has now been confirmed that the ruling will be revoked soon.
quot;We have registered a complaint of spurious CNG kits being retrofitted in cars with the Delhi Police which is now investigating the matter. In one or two days we will revoke the ban on retrofitting of CNG kits in carsquot; said Delhi Transport Minister Sayendar Jain.
The first suspect for what caused the ruling was thenbsp;odd-even schemenbsp;implemented in the nation’s capital. The scheme has a set list of peoplevehicles that are exempt from it. Included in this list of exemptions are CNG powered vehicles and understandably this motivated a lot of people to install the alternative fuel system. This may have led to a surplus of faulty kits being supplied and subsequently the administration’s corrective action.
