As many as 45 new Indraprastha Gas CNG stations are awaiting the go-ahead from various authorities, including the Municipal Corporation, Delhi Police and explosives department, to commence operations in the city.
The company had planned to open 61 new CNG filling stations, keeping in mind the forthcoming Commonwealth Games. Out of these, 16 have been made operational and the rest are awaiting various approvals.
"45 newly built CNG filling stations are ready, but they can't be made operational as we are yet to get licenses and approvals from various authorities," Indraprastha Gas Managing Director Rajesh Vedvyas told PTI.
Vedvyas said that preparations for the Commonwealth Games are ahead of schedule and barring 45 stations which are waiting for licenses, 196 of its CNG stations are operational.
