Views: 402

Gujarat is likely to become the first Indian state to get completely covered under the piped gas distribution network after the ninth round of bidding, which will see a quarter of the country brought under the network.

The state has already 84.31 per cent of its area under the city gas distribution (CGD) network and the remaining area will be covered after the ninth round of bidding which opened last month, said Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board Chairperson D K Sarraf on the sidelines of the investors’ meet organised on the ninth CGD bidding round.

Gujarat has also decided to offer a subsidy to households from weaker economic sections to avail cooking gas through CGD network, he added.

Currently, CGD sector is currently consuming 20 million cubic meter natural gas per day and this demand will grow by the time.

In the latest bidding round, 14 additional districts, 6 complete and 8 part, will be covered under the CGD network in the state, including Gir Somnath, Morbi, Mahisagar, Narmada, Kheda, Junagadh, and Tapi.
