The Minister also flagged off a CNG awareness auto rally which saw the participation of over a hundred CNG-powered autos that covered a distance of 15 km between the two CNG stations.
In December 2017, two CNG stations at Chandrasekharpur and Patia started operations in Bhubaneswar.
Two more stations are being constructed in Khandagiri and Tamando and another two would be ready in near future.
Also, provision is being made for L-CNG (Liquefied CNG), wherein natural gas will be transported in liquid form in cryogenic tankers from Dahej in Gujarat to Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.
