Following a Gujarat High Court order, the Centre had ordered all of domestically available natural gas for city gas projects to be equitably distributed among all the companies in the country than convert the fuel into compressed natural gas (CNG) for sale to automobiles.
"We want restoration of Delhi`s quota of CNG allocation under the administered price mechanism which was reduced by the Centre to implement the Gujarat High Court," a Delhi Government official said.
"The state government will file a special leave petition in the Supreme Court appealing that Delhi`s share of CNG supply should be fixed like Mumbai and Ahmedabad," the official said.
“The Delhi government has decided to file a special leave petition in the Supreme Court in the matter so that the right`s of Delhi should be preserved in the same manner as has been done for Mumbai and Ahmedabad,” said the official.
"After studying the entire matter and aggrieved by the Centre`s order to raise the CNG prices which automatically have a cascading effect, the government feels Centre`s decision to raise the CNG prices was discriminatory and contempt of the court judgement," said the official.
