Transport Minister Satyendar Jain Tuesday announced that the government is set to revoke its ban on registration of retrofitted CNG cars.

In a relief to lakhs of motorists seeking to convert their petrol-run cars to CNG mode, Delhi transport minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday said that government will revoke its ban on the retrofitting of CNG kits in “in-use” cars in next one or two days.

“We have registered 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 cars,” the transport minister said.

While issuing its ban order on June 20 this month, the department had directed its motor licensing officers (MLOs) not to register vehicles that have been retrofitted with CNG kits till further orders.

“In this connection, all MLOs are hereby directed not to endorse CNG fuel in vehicle registration certificates till further orders,” the department had said in its order.

The minister dismissed talk about such “spurious” CNG kits being introduced in the market during the Delhi government’s flagship odd-even scheme, from which CNG cars are exempt..
