Bangladesh Standard and Testing Institution (BSTI) is to introduce testing system on experimental basis for the Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)-run auto rickshaw meters in four divisional cities within three months.
The system will be introduced in Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet and Rajshahi, where the authorities concerned would enforce this system to ensure hassle free service for the passengers, an official handout said.
A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting on the progress of implementation of the Annual Development Projects (ADP) at the Industries Ministry's conference room with Industries Secretary Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan in the chair.
According to the handout, the government is also implementing a project with an estimated cost of about Taka 7.40 core to install necessary equipments in the BSTI to examine the CNG metering system.
During the meeting, the concerned authorities have been asked to complete the construction works of the Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) at Savar tannery industrial park as early as possible.
It was also decided to hold a meeting for canceling the allotment of plots, where the owners have not yet started construction at the Savar tannery industrial park.
