CNG prices hiked in Delhi and NCR. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) prices here by over 25 per cent, following the government’s move to more than double the price of natural gas. CNG rates in Delhi went up by Rs 5.60 per kg – from Rs 21.90 to Rs 27.50 per kg. It is assumed that prices of diesel may also raise.
CNG would still offer 59 per cent savings in terms of running cost compared to petrol driven vehicles at the current level of prices in Delhi. When compared to diesel driven vehicles, the economics in favour of CNG at revised price would be 28 per cent.
