He also directed Labour Department to issue the list of CNG kit fitting shops for their regular inspection.

He issued these directions while chairing a meeting held in his office, which was also attended by SAO Aqeel Ahmed Khan, Secretary RTA Ajmal Bukhari, DO Labour Liaquat Ali, Labour Officer Khizer Hayat, DSP Saddar Malik Ijaz and other officers.

DO Labour informed the meeting that there were 268 CNG pumps in the district whereas only 51 CNG pumps had CNG kit conversion workshops. DCO directed RTA secretary and Motor Vehicle Examiner to take action against the public transport vehicles in which the CNG cylinders were fitted under the seats of the passengers whereas LPG cylinders were totally not allowed in public transport vehicles. These cylinders must be removed and be confiscated to avoid any sort of untoward incident. Such transporters should be challened and a weekly report be furnished in the DCO office.

“The fitness certificate of those vehicles which were using unauthorized and substandard CNG cylinders must be cancelled on the violation of already laid down rules and instructions,” he added.
