We are approaching a situation where two out of every 10 vehicles run on CNG, the green fuel. There was a 9% rise in CNG vehicles in Mumbai region in 2019-20 as compared to 2018-19, latest statistics released by Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) show. The total number of vehicles registered in 2019-20 was 7.52 lakh as against 6.9 lakh in the same period last year — an increase of 62,000.
A look at the data between 2016-17 to 2019-20 shows that the number of vehicles in the Mumbai metro region has gone up by 2.10 lakh over four years. Of these, the fourth year alone (2019-20) has seen a growth of more than 60,000 vehicles — a welcome development at a time when the economy has not witnessed a very robust growth but has seen quality of air improve.
