Speaking to reporters, Joshi said that the Maharashtra Natural Gas Limited, which has been entrusted with the task of supplying CNG in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad, wants to start new outlets.
Currently, there are over 32,500 autorickshaws and more than 21,000 private vehicles which run on CNG. If the number of CNG outlets are increased, it will help autorickshaw drivers and vehicle owners.
Joshi said that in the present financial year, CNG outlets have started on Paud road, Pisoli, Nigdi and Chakan. Additional CNG outlets will start shortly at Warje, Wagholi, Wakad, Nagar road, Chinchwad, Pimpale Gurav, Punavale, and Bhosari. MNGL also has plans to start CNG outlets at Gultekdi vehicle depot and Ambegaon.
