Agartala: Plans are afoot to turn Tripura’s capital into a green city by fitting, within two years, thousands of vehicles running on petrol or diesel with CNG kits and providing city households with piped natural gas connections, a senior official said Wednesday.

“While issuing vehicle permits, priority is given to those running on CNG (compressed natural gas). This is not only cheaper but also very environment-friendly. Our target is to make the capital Agartala a green city,” Tripura Industrial Development Corporation (TIDC) Chairman Pabitra Kar told IANS.
