According to Chennai officials, natural gas for vehicles is the future way of keeping pollution under control and availability and infrastructure investments are the challenges to start the project. “There is a huge investment to be made to bring CNG to Chennai. Delhi had brought CNG successfully to its city transport network and we are also considering the move,” said a senior official, reported Times of India
Furthermore, according to Express India, Kerala transport operator NGV fleet will refuel at the first four filling stations that will be initially installed in the city of Kochi. However, KSRTC plans to earmark a specific area for CNG fuelling points at all bus depots.
“CNG-powered units, which are now used in Mumbai and New Delhi, will be also operated in major cities in the state with the availability of natural gas. CNG kit industry will be also coming up in Kerala as the agreement has been signed for the natural gas-related projects,” said Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC) managing director Alkesh Kumar Sharma.
