It's isn't of any value to anyone - although it's inside the engine bay for retrofitted cars.

Default Re: CNG Compliance Plate: Soon Mandatory for all CNG Vehicles

BHPians a small query!
Mine is a preowned esteem from True Value: Apra, and i've the compliance plate already installed with endorsement in RC. But, somewhere i read that the plates are valid only for 5 years.
The year on my plate is 2007, do i need to get a retest done? I confirmed the same from a few attendants, they were a bit confused and had no clear answer.

Should i get a retest done?

Absolutely YES.
CNG kit has to be retested - or typically called "Hydro Stress Test" once it completes 5 years - they'll take whole day - drop off the car in the morning, and pick it up in the evening - or wait there and watch what they do ! To summarize, they'll remove the cylinder, empty out the CNG, clean it, look for cracks, repaint it etc. I'll be sending my Swift for the same procedure tomorrow morning with my driver - will let you know the details thereafter.

The above costs 1000rs - and I am getting mine done from Dwarka.

Shiva Motors is it ?

My swift has just reached their place, and as per telephonic chat i'll get it back by 4PM. Though had it been an off day for me I would have sat on their head for faster delivery - but you know the lovely weather out here

Update - Got the certificate for next 3 years, no issues found in cylinder/beading and installation.
Will get it filled this weekend, and will take it to MASS for leak test before switching it over to CNG.
Total cost came out to be 1000 + 200(for plate) = 1200

I found no compliance plate in my co. fitted car. No plate on the cylinder in the boot and no plate near the fill point under the bonnet, looks like some time will have to be spent afterall in this lovely weather.

As expected the deadline has been increased by the government, Stupid decision of fixing this compliance plates and more foolish decision to extend the deadline.

Don't pay more than Rs. 150-250 for this plate.

The plate comes free of cost with all approved kits. If retrofitters were not fitting it in vehicles, it is their fault. All you should pay for is the blank punching machine/labour, and since this task takes not more than 20 mins, don't pay Rs. 1000 or Rs. 500. It's just the case of the retrofitter making moolah.

Also, deadline in Delhi NCR has been extended up to Aug (users have time till 31 July) . So pricey acting Retrofitters should be avoided.

Found the plate. I was looking at the wrong place! It's in the hood alright, but tucked away on the opposite side of the filling nozzle almost hidden behind some wires. I'm good.

And the plate is required in ALL CNG fitted cars. But a co. fitted one will have it somewhere or the other.

I, for one feel that all this Compliance plate issue is just a gimmick. Another way to mint money. Had it been so important as per the law, why were the retrofitted cars without plate passed by the MLOs over the years.

Had IGL be so serious about the non-endorsed CNG kits, it could have simply mandated to show RC with CNG endorsed upon it before filling at CNG stations.

Non-RC endorsed vehicles shall still continue to get CNG. The only point being that the pump attendant would charge a Rs.10-20 commission per refill from the car owner. Besides, the compliance plate have no uniqueness or authentic seal on it, any one with a galvanized sheet and punching number set can easily make it. Reminds me of my first semester engineering days when we had to make a job using GI sheet n punching our roll no onto it in workshop practical.

I got a plate installed for my wagon r. I was not carrying the RC . He installed it anyway. So even cars which don't have RC endorsed can get it done. Paid Rs.300 . Charges vary from Rs.200 to Rs.600 installer to installer.

Basically waste of time and money.

Can anybody recommend an authorised CNG Hydro test center in Delhi, preferably east Delhi? The five year test rule is now shortened to three years and I've been refused a refill on too many occasions across various IGL vends in the recent past.

Might as well get the test done, so what if Petrol is getting cheaper.

Center details are on the home page of IGL - http://www.iglonline.net/default.aspx

Look at the left hand side of the main page.
