Modi Government to relief from buying expensive petrol from this 'plan'!

JULY 18 (WTN) - As you know that India imports about 90 per cent of its petrol-diesel requirement. Depending on the political situation of the Gulf countries, and the cost of Indian rupees against the US dollar, prices of petrol and diesel are fixed in India every day. Naturally, due to dependence on other conditions, there is increasing and decreasing in petrol-diesel prices in India. Many times the prices of petrol and diesel increase so that the anger in the public increases. Now the Modi Government is giving the option of petrol-diesel to the public for this reason.

For your information, let you know that by the year 2030, the Government has planned that two-wheelers and three-wheelers vehicles should be run with batteries instead of petrol-diesel. Meanwhile, the Government is now going to promote ethanol-driven vehicles. At this time, Union Minister, Nitin Gadkari has said that soon Pump can be set up for the sale of ethanol in the country.

Actually, the bike maker company TVS has launched the country's first ethanol-driven bike in the market. TVS has recently launched the TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi E100, which is the ethanol-powered bike. TVS has launched the ethanol-driven bike in the market, but for your information, let you know there is no single pump available for the sale of ethanol at this time in India. In such a case, it is a question that when the ethanol pumps will start opening in India.

For your information, let you know that the use of ethanol instead of petrol gets rid of air pollution. To make the National Capital Region Delhi free of air pollution, the Central Government has set a target of two years. If the Government wants to achieve this, then it is very important for the use of electric vehicles and the use of ethanol in the vehicles. Under a scheme, the Central Government will encourage people to use ethanol instead of petrol in the vehicles.

About this, Union Minister Gadkari says that for the smooth supply of ethanol, he will write a letter to the Ministry of Oil and Gas asking for the establishment of ethanol pumps. For your information, let you know that the establishment of ethanol pumps can be started from the sugar cane producing states like Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

You might be thinking that how ethanol can be used instead of petrol in the vehicles, then for your information, let you know that ethanol is an eco-friendly fuel, which is manufactured in sugar mills with sugarcane juice. According to the information, ethanol is non-toxic and biodegradable. Not only this, it can easily be stored in comparison to petrol, and its transport is also quite easy as compared to petrol.

Ethanol is an oxygenated fuel, which contains 35 per cent oxygen. According to automobile engineers, ethanol use reduces nitrogen oxide emissions. This is the reason that the Government is encouraging the use of ethanol instead of petrol. Here the Government has approved 10 per cent ethanol mixture in petrol. For your information, let you know that at present, the price of one liter ethanol is 52.43 rupees, which is about 20 rupees cheaper than petrol. If the vehicles start running by ethanol in the country, the lot of the money of the people of the country will save in buying expensive petrol.

Well, using ethanol in vehicles is not new. The first use of ethanol in the vehicles was in Brazil in the year 1979, 40 years ago. Since 1979, Brazilian automobile companies are manufacturing 10 per cent ethanol-based vehicles. For your information, let you know that most ethanol is produced in Brazil. Talking about India, then ethanol market in India was about 11 thousand crore rupees last year, which is expected to reach close to Rs 20,000 crore this year.

Well, for your information, let you know that the Central Government has notified the decision to grant ethanol to sugarcane juice or B-grade sheera last year itself. The sugarcane control order 1966 has been revised, and it has been notified by the Central Food Ministry. With this decision, the sugar mills will be able to produce ethanol directly with sugarcane juice in the surplus years (when sugarcane production will be high). Now it has to be seen that when the manufacturing, sales and operation of ethanol-driven vehicles in India start and the people get relief from expensive fuel.
