Former Pakistani CNG Association (APCNGA) threatened the courts to challenge the government's decision to ban cylinders at PSV as highway police and the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICR) administration began cracking down on such vehicles. Ghyas Paracha, APCNGA's central leader, said highway police are illegal to prohibit PSV's entry into the highway.

We will challenge the court," he said. He said PSV had no right to ban cylinder use as Ogra agreed to install two cylinders in Hiace in 2013. He said PSV could install a cylinder on the roof. Ogra only asked to remove the cylinder inside the vehicle.

He said there are about 500,000 PSVs that completely ban CNG in cars, which means that CNG cylinders run on the road and CNG destroys the CNG sector. Paracha argued that the ban on CNG cylinders was a plot of a petroleum mafia to re-fuel markets.
