      Lightbulb Compliance plates for CNG cars

      Starting June 1, pumps will refuse CNG to vehicles found without a compliance plate. The plate includes a CNG cylinder identification number, date of installation, date of last re-test, besides other things.

      Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), the fuel supplier, has issued directions to all CNG pumps to ensure that the gas is dispensed only to those vehicles that have an updated compliance plate. "In case a vehicle has been retrofitted earlier without a compliance plate, the vehicle owner must contact a retro fitment center to get the plate installed now. The list of authorized centers is available on the websites of transport department," said a government officer.

      On February 12, the transport department had issued a circular to all authorized retro fitment centers regarding the same. In case of non-compliance of order, the department can cancel the license of the dealer, the circular added.

      "This exercise aims to crackdown on vehicles using unauthorized CNG kits," said an IGL officer. The agency is also distributing pamphlets at CNG pumps .

      In the first phase last year, IGL had promoted awareness on re-testing of the cylinder. For all CNG vehicles, whose cylinder life has crossed five years, it is mandatory to get a hydrotest done. "The test helps in certifying the cylinder and provides other details. As per the Gas Cylinder Rules 2004, it is mandatory to run hydro test on cylinders of CNG and LPG vehicles every five years. With the updated plate we would also be able to keep a tab on this," the official added.
