After state-owned GAIL India Ltd, Gujarat government has sought Rs 6,600 crore from the Central government to partly fund two gas pipeline projects of its firm GSPL including one taking the fuel to Jammu and Kashmir.

Gujarat State Petronet Ltd (GSPL) had in 2011 quoted rock-bottom tariff to win rights to lay gas pipeline from Mehsana in Gujarat to Bhatinda in Punjab and onwards to Jammu and Srinagar.

“The Government of Gujarat in the month of October, 2016 has requested the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas to consider a capital grant of 40 per cent” for the Mehsana- Bhatinda-Jammu-Srinagar Pipeline (MBJSPL) and Mallavaram- Bhopal-Bhilwara-Vijaipur Pipeline (MBBVPL) projects, Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday.
