New Delhi, Sept 09: Incensed by IGL giving wrong figures on its CNG dispensation capacity which had a major bearing on the previous orders, the Supreme Court today observed that the Union government might have to make some other arrangement as the company was "throughly incompetent".
"May be you will have to make some other arrangement as
these people are thoroughly incompetent," a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice B N Kirpal said after solicitor
general Harish Salve brought forth the contradictory figures
given by the IGL.
Appearing for Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), senior advocate P Chidambaram timidly submitted that "incorrect and ambiguous statements were made. Now we are making correct statements."
The counsel stated that the demand of CNG calculated by the union government and other agencies at 16.11 lakh kg per day was erroneous and grossly exaggerated.
The bench said "the union government is directed to inform the court on September 23 as to what remedial steps be taken to ensure full and proper dispensation of CNG to transport sector without there being any queue of vehicles at
the CNG stations."
