The CNG Prices in Bangalore are subject to change regularly and it will be decided by the government of India. The CNG or Compressed Natural Gas is made by compressing natural gas and it mainly consists of methane. It is the safest fuel in case of a spill because the natural gas is lighter when compared to air and it disperses quickly when released. The lack of awareness added to the shortage of CNG filling stations and the entry of electric vehicles has hit the popularity of CNG vehicles in Bangalore.

Bangalore was previously known as the garden city of India.
With the presence of huge gardens and beautiful weather, it was nothing less than heaven on earth. With the passage of time the beautiful gardens paved way for concrete buildings and the rise in population led to the widening of roads which eventually led to the fall of trees and this led to the conversion of a beautiful garden city to a dense thickly populated concrete jungle.
So far there are close to 350 vehicles which are currently using CNG as an alternative fuel to run the vehicles. The lack of filling stations, awareness amongst the people regarding CNG and its uses and entry of electric vehicles has resulted in the low popularity of CNG based vehicles in Bangalore.
The GAIL Gas Limited currently runs CNG filling stations across the city and it is currently in the expansion mode and is planning to set up close to 60 CNG filling stations over a period of next three to four years. The GAIL has entered into a collaboration with IOCL, HPCL and BPCL to set up stations at their respective retail outlets in Bangalore.
The GAIL Gas Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Maharatna GAIL (India) Limited, was established way back in May 2008 with an intention for the smooth implementation of City Gas Distribution (CGD) projects. GAIL Gas has authorisation from the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board for implementing City Gas Distribution Projects in Bengaluru.
The GAIL Gas Limited is functioning efficiently in Bangalore to increase the number of users of CNG and is creating awareness amongst the youth to opt for CNG variant vehicles instead of using the traditional fuel-based vehicles. To facilitate the availability of CNG beyond the city limits the GAIL has implemented a Green Corridor Project to facilitate the availability of CNG beyond the city limits so that the clean fuel is available even for the long-distance journeys.
The PNGRB authorizes GAIL Gas to implement CGD projects in the urban and rural districts of Bangalore in 2015. In 2018, the GAIL Gas has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Uber to catalyze the CNG ecosystem in Bengaluru.
CNG or Compressed Natural Gas is one of the fuels available today. The fuel has secured popularity over a while due to a list of advantages it provides. Apart from being eco-friendly, it is a great fuel from a safety point of view.
In terms of price, CNG is cheaper than petrol or even diesel. CNG fitted cars are one of the common vehicles which we get to see on the busy lanes of Bangalore roads. This was not the case, before the last few years. People around the globe are leaning towards convenient fuels like CNG which is pocket friendly and also scores big over common forms of fuel like petrol and diesel which are harming the environment in tremendous ways. The gases emitted by fuels cause major health issues like asthma, bronchitis, diseases related to respiration, skin allergies and so on. These harmful gases let out in the environment are the byproducts of a chemical process which occurs when the engine in the car is running.
