The price of petrol is considerably cheaper in Uttarakhand compared to other states of India. This is mostly because of the fact that the Central Government has requested the state government to reduce VAT or sales tax on petrol. The government of Uttarakhand welcomed the Centre's decision and lowered the tax on petrol accordingly. Following this decision, the excise duty on petrol was reduced and the government of Uttarakhand also lowered the VAT on petrol.
Burning of petrol or diesel releases black smoke along with many harmful and poisonous gases into the atmosphere causing pollution and several potential health hazards to the exposed individuals. CNG, on the other hand, is almost smokeless when it burns. Burning CNG also doesn't produce any toxic gases, hence it doesn't cause air pollution. It is safer to say CNG is a cleaner fuel as compared to petrol and diesel.
