Reading Comprehension

Read the comprehension and answer the following question:

The determined plan of the petroleum bureau to introduce lead complimentary petrol is not likely to take off. The utilization of old model vehicles by a large section of the people and the high cost involved in making the necessary changes  in the engine for switching over to use of lead free petrol are the major hurdles in the smooth take off of the plan. Faced with rising level of greenhouse gasses, mainly in the urban cities, the ministry of petroleum has issued training as early as in 1986 to bring down the utmost permissible lead content in petrol from 0.26 grams per liter to 0.36 grams per liter by September 1995, this training were continual on October 20th, 1995 and the revised target dates were separated into two parts. Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai were to bring in petrol with lead content of 0.26 gram per liter by November 1998, with the rest of the country being abounding with petrol not more than 0.15 gram per liter by the similar period. Sources in the petroleum Ministry pointed out that the introduction of lead free petrol need heavy asset. While preferably a vehicle should be run on lead less petrol, the automobile industry in the country is not fully equipped to manufacture such automobile which can run on lead free petrol. Sources pointed out that the lead less petrol can only be used on a catalatic convertor made of to be changed so that at the time of the manufacturing itself such convertors can be fitted. Significantly the cost of imported catatic convertors is in the range of Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 35,000. Moreover the use of lead free petrol in a vehicle would warrant its continuous use and if petrol with low lead content is used even ones; the engine is likely to be damaged. Sources said that even if the automobile industry was to switch over to the new technology of catalatic convertors, there would still be a problem because vehicle owners would loathe discarding their old vehicles. Petrol with lead content would still have to be made available to this section of car owners. Faced with this dilemma, the petroleum Ministry may revise its schedule by introducing a scheme, mix lead less petrol, as and when the automobile industry is prepared for the switch over and petrol with very low content of lead for old vehicles without the necessary catalatic convertors.
