QR codes could prevent forging of CNG tank plates

The Transport Department, auto-taxi unions and CNG meter fitters had their first meeting on Tuesday to discuss ways to prevent forged plates from being fitted on CNG tanks. One of the proposed solutions was to emboss QR codes on the plates. The meeting comes after reports of forged plates being fitted on CNG tanks by auto and taxi drivers emerged, raising serious safety concerns.

DNA reported about the issue on April 6 in the article ‘Committee formed to probe malpractices in testing CNG tanks’. “This was the first meeting to understand the situation,” said an official from the Transport Department.
