The move would help curb the air pollution of the state capital as CNG enabled vehicles would start plying on city roads, Kumar said.
The capital city, whose air quality has worsened in recent past, topped the Central Pollution Control Board's air quality index on three consecutive day from January 1, 2019.
It also sanctioned Rs 8.20 crore for construction of temporary tent city at Kangan Ghat here on the occasion of Guruparv being organised between January 11-13 to celebrate the 352nd birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh, Kumar said.
Farmers would be given compensation for their crop damage due to the construction of tent city on their land, he said.
The cabinet also sanctioned Rs 725.97 crore as loan to Primary Agriculture Cooperative Society (PACS) and Vyapar Mandal from Bihar Contingency Fund to ensure the Minimum Support Price to the farmers so that they do not resort to distress selling, the principal secretary said.
