Conduit used as ground

I had a rather strange discussion with our electrical inspector today. We were planning on using the conduit as our grounding conductor. I would rather pull ground wire but we are trying to eliminate extra cost. He told me that we can use the conduit as a ground but where it enters any concentric knockout that has a bigger size available we could not use it as a ground. we would need to install a bonding bushing or install a ground wire. i knew this rule applied for service conduits but i was not awear it applied for branch circuits of 110v. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

If you had circuits that were 250v or higher to ground then he'd be correct but not for 120v circuits.
