MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT CNG
The Supreme Court of India ruled on July 28, 1998 that all eight-year-old buses and pre-1990 three-wheelers and taxis would have to be converted to compressed natural gas (CNG) by March 31, 2000. For the rest of the buses, three-wheelers and taxis, the deadline was fixed as March 31, 2001. This order, however, is getting to be the most difficult to implement. Resistance from the diesel lobby and lack of support from the government nearly sabotaged the initiative.
