Nitin Gadkari for uniform policy on ethanol-blending with petrol

BJP President Nitin Gadkari today asked the government to implement the policy of mandatory 5 per cent blending of ethanol with petrol in all states to help farmers as also reduce India’s oil import bill. Gadkari made this appeal during a meeting with the officials of ministries of petroleum, consumer affairs and new and renewable energy here today.
The government has already made it mandatory for doping of petrol with at least five per cent of ethanol across the country to save around 100 crore litres of fuel annually. But the programme is not being implemented in all states as suppliers of ethanol, a by-product of sugarcane, are unable to meet the supply requirements.
States such as Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra are the largest producers and can be developed as major suppliers of it.
