Hindustan Petroleum moves SC against Gujarat HC order

The Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) moved the Supreme Court Monday, challenging the Gujarat High Court's order of July last year that required all cars registered in the state to switch to gas within a year.

The court tagged the petition with the central government's plea on the same issue and ordered for its listing after four weeks.

The HC had directed the state government to pass necessary laws to make it compulsory for all four-wheelers registered in Gujarat to convert to natural gas within one year. It had also directed the Centre to allocate natural gas, including CNG, to Ahmedabad city at the same price as it supplies to Delhi and Mumbai under the Administered Price Mechanism.
