Delhi Government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on 11 August 2015 decided to constitute an independent Commission of Inquiry to probe the multi-crore CNG fitness scam of Delhi. This Commission of Inquiry will be headed by a retired High Court judge, Justice SN Agarwal.

The Delhi cabinet has mandated that the commission will complete its probe within three months from the date of its first sitting.

The one-man probe panel was set up under the Commission of Inquiry Act, 1952  will look into all the investigations and developments that have taken place in this case, including wrongful denials of sanctions to prosecute guilty officials and dereliction of duty in taking action against those involved in the scam.

The decision to constitute an inquiry commission on the scam was taken at a Cabinet meet presided over by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

About the CNG fitness scam

The CNG fitness scam surfaced in 2012 when Anti Corruption Bureau found that the Delhi government had lost over 100 crore rupees by awarding the contract to operate and maintain certification of CNG vehicles at the transport authority in Burari to ESP India instead of ESP USA.

A number of officials of previous Sheila Dikshit government are under scanner in the multi-crore CNG fitness scam. These officials had been given a clean chit by the Dikshit regime and approved by LG Najeeb Jung in 2013.
