The Delhi government is set to lift the ban on cars retrofit with CNG kits. All authorised CNG manufacturers and dealers are to register details on the government's online software data base the government said.
The software will capture details of fitment of new or in-use vehicles by manufacturers/ importers to distributors/ retro fitment centres. It will keep a tab on all the kits being issued to the public and will put an end to any fake kits. All in-use kits already fitted to the car can be registered as well.
Currently, vehicles only with kits fit by the manufacturers were registered, with the ban lifted registration of CNG cars will start next week. In June, the government had banned the registration of cars retrofit kits due to an inquiry related to CNG retrofit scam.
The government had made it mandatory to fit only OBD-II system kits which cost approximately Rs 55,000. However, several companies were selling fake kits and this led to the ban of cars with CNG retrofit kits.
