UNCERTAINTY PREVAILS over introduction of CNG-run vehicles in the city as talks are on with various transport unions to find out a solution.
As per the plan, the GAIL would start supplying CNG from April 1 at its Fajalganj unit. On Wednesday, the city also witnessed two CNG-run autos when Ram Narain Singh and Ram Kumar Saxena purchased them costing Rs 1.15 lakh each from the RNG Motors.
Director of RNG Motors Manoj Garg said they had got order for 100 such vehicles.
Talking to HT, he said the petrol-run autos could be easily converted into CNG version and the autos with rear side engine could be the best bet with the CNG-kit. The kit would cost about Rs 30,000. Garg further said the CNG would cost Rs 28 per kg and it would cover 32 km in a kg. Thus, it would be beneficial for auto owners, since they spent about Rs 51 per litre for fuel.
