Indian Auto LPG Coalition Urges Inclusion in National Fuel Policy

The Indian Auto LPG Coalition (IAC) is actively advocating for the integration of Auto LPG into India's national fuel policy framework to advance the country's clean energy objectives. In a concerted effort to promote sustainable transportation solutions, the IAC has approached Union Cabinet Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari, highlighting Auto LPG's potential to significantly reduce harmful emissions and lower fuel costs for consumers.

Auto LPG, known for being approximately 40% cheaper than petrol and emitting fewer pollutants, stands out as a practical alternative fuel option. Suyash Gupta, Director General of IAC, underscored the dual benefits of Auto LPG adoption, emphasizing its capability to mitigate emissions such as CO2 and particulate matter. This reduction not only enhances air quality but also contributes to public health improvement, addressing critical environmental concerns.

The coalition has put forth strategic proposals to bolster the adoption of Auto LPG across the country. These proposals include advocating for a more prominent role for Auto LPG within the national clean fuel policy alongside electric vehicles (EVs) and compressed natural gas (CNG). Additionally, the IAC has recommended tax incentives to incentivize manufacturers to produce Auto LPG vehicle variants and has proposed a reduction in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on Auto LPG from 18% to 5%. Aligning the GST rate with domestic LPG aims to curb illegal diversion and make Auto LPG more affordable and accessible for consumers nationwide.

Gupta expressed confidence in Minister Gadkari's leadership, stating that his support would be crucial in integrating Auto LPG into India's broader clean fuel strategy. This initiative comes at a pivotal moment as India aims to diversify its energy sources, reduce dependence on imported oil, and achieve sustainable economic growth through cleaner energy alternatives.

The IAC's efforts underscore a concerted push towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious transportation sector in India, aligning with global trends towards cleaner energy solutions and reinforcing the country's commitment to environmental stewardship and energy security.
