Ban on CNG kits till further orders: Delhi govt issues order

Published

on

The Delhi government has banned fitting of CNG conversion kits in vehicles in the capital following complaints of unauthorised dealers fitting uncertified kits in cars. Now, petrol-fuelled vehicles considering conversion to CNG will not be able to do so.

The transport department Wednesday ordered all motor licensing officers (MLOs) to not approve or register CNG retro-fitment kits after they received complaints of unauthorised dealers selling uncertified kits. According to sources, Transport Minister Satyendar Jain himself had visited the Burari regional transport authority for inspection.

Jain reportedly found merit in the allegations and directed the transport department to file a police complaint. “The transport department has been conducting its own inquiries and inspections as well over the last few days. We have forwarded a police complaint to Civil Lines police station regarding the matter,” said a Delhi government spokesperson.

However, Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) Madhur Verma said, “We have not physically received any
complaint yet.”

The events unfolded after a company named M/s Dashmesh CNG Impex Pvt Ltd lodged a complaint with the transport department recently alleging that substandard and unapproved kits were being fitted in vehicles. “We received several complaints from private persons and authorised dealers that sub-standard OBD II sequential CNG kits were being fitted in cars at the prices of the original ones,” said a senior transport official.

Following the complaint from the private company, the transport department circulated a notification internally, directing the MLOs to ensure that these kits should not be endorsed by zonal authority and they should submit a certificate to the effect. The transport department further said that if any lapses are noticed in the retro-fitted cars, the MLOs should take immediate necessary action and intimate the office of the MLO (operations).

However, when no complaints or reports were received, the transport department officials ordered a second directive on Monday directing an inquiry into the matter and naming two companies to be investigated.

Amaravati, Nov 30 : Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy is dedicated to resolve any roblems faced by state farmers, Agriculture Minister Kurasala Kannababu said on Monday in the Assembly as its winter session began.

“We do not have a Chief Minister who indulges in gimmicks before elections. He has said that he will take up any initiative to resolve farmers’ problems wholeheartedly,” said Kannababu

He said that the YSRCP government had fulfilled most of the promises made to farmers and highlighted that Rs 13,463 crore have been directly credited to farmers’ accounts in last 18 months.

Kannababu assailed Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national President Nara Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh for allegedly undermining Reddy’s aerial survey of Nivar- affected districts.

He showed a photograph of Naidu conducting a similar survey when he was CM while enjoying a hot beverage in helicopter and compared it with his successor’s survey.

The Minister said that Reddy takes comprehensive stock of the ground situation whenever natural calamities strike the state.

According to Kannababu, crops on 6.56 lakh hectares of land was damaged during recent torrential downpour. He said the revenue enumeration is still on.

“The CM told us to finish the enumeration by December 10 so as to pay compensation to the affected farmers by December-end. The Agriculture Department and other concerned ones are working towards that goal,” he said.

Kannababu said that the Chief Minister had instructed officials to buy crops from farmers even if it had changed colour.

Meanwhile, the winter session saw a decent turnout of MLAs, including opposition leader Naidu, who was seen wearing a mask.
