Greater inclination towards the use of eco-friendly and economical fuels has led to increase in demand for CNG in India. As a result, various models for CNG stations have gained traction in the past few years, including liquid-to-compressed natural gas (LCNG) and bio-CNG stations. Additionally, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas has also launched a new model called Dealer Owned Dealer Operated (DODO) model, which aims to facilitate the expansion of CNG fueling infrastructure across the country.
