In 5 years iped gas has reached only 4,700 households


(G.N.S) Dt. 19
It has been almost five years since the Gas Authority of India Limited (Gail) commenced delivery of gas from Dabhol in Maharashtra to Bengaluru through its 1,000-km long pipeline. However, implementation of the Bengaluru City Gas Distribution (CGD) project to deliver piped natural gas (PNG) to households has been tardy.
Union minister of state for statistics and programme implementation Vijay Goel on Thursday reviewed the project’s progress, saying only 4,700 households in Bengaluru are using PNG. “As many as 1.32 lakh households will get PNG connections in two years. Gail Gas Ltd has already created infrastructure to provide connections to 57,000 households,” said Goel.
“Work on CNG stations in Laggere, Sumanahalli, Hennur and Peenya has been completed. Another 14 CNG stations will be set up soon,” said a senior official of Gail Gas Limited.
