Let us tell you that due to diesel there is a lot of pollution and it is also expensive, in such a situation, making CNG tractor powered by CNG will prove beneficial for the farmers. According to the information, the diesel tractor has been converted to CNG powered.
First CNG Tractor of Country
The Ministry of Road Transport has set standards for CNG tractors according to which the tractors will be available in the market. These tractors will be provided with CNG kits so that they can be run at low cost. The special thing is that diesel will be needed to start it, but later it will shift its fuel source to CNG, so that farmers will be able to reduce their farming expenses. Nitin Gadkari said that the CNG kit will be made under Make in India.

On the occasion of unveiling the country’s first CNG tractor, Gadkari has told that every year farmers spend an amount of up to Rs 3.5 lakh for the use of tractor, out of which 2.5 lakh on tractor used only for agriculture. However, now after shifting to CNG, farmers will be able to save up to Rs 1.5 lakh in the use of tractors. This is a huge amount which will greatly benefit the farmers.
Maintenance cost is low
Maintenance cost of CNG tractors is much lower than common diesel tractors. This information has been given by Nitin Gadkari. In fact, due to carbon dioxide in diesel tractors, there are many problems that farmers have to spend money to repair, but CNG tractors are going to be very low maintenance.
Pollution will decrease
New CNG tractors will reduce the level of increased pollution in the country. According to an estimate, it takes about 4 liters of diesel to use a tractor for one hour, and if this time is increased to 3 to 4 hours, then the cost of diesel increases and at the same time, pollution also increases significantly. There are some states in which agriculture is the main means of livelihood of the people and in such states, the use of tractors is more, which also causes more pollution. CNG-powered tractors can cause a significant drop in pollution levels.
