He explained that CNG stations were purchasing gas at Rs 750 per MMBTU and also pay Rs 230 per MMBTU as gas infrastructure development cess (GIDC) which translate into Rs 980 per MMBTU cost for the CNG sector. Contrary to this, the industry was getting gas at Rs 460 per MMBTU while GIDC was only Rs 13 per MMBTU.And for fertilizer factories, it was only Rs 60.60 per MMBTU while GIDC was Rs 116.27 per MMBTU.
