Soon, IGL to expand operations in Haryana
Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), the supplier of CNG and PNG in Delhi and NCR towns, has now been authorised by Petroleum & Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) to lay City Gas Distribution (CGD) network in the geographical area of Rewari in Haryana.
The announcement to this effect was made by M Ravindran, Chairman, IGL while addressing shareholders at the 17th Annual General Meeting of the company in the Capital.
Ravindran also gave an overview of future plans of the organisation involving consolidation of its presence in existing areas, as well as expansion in new geographies in view of the focus of the government to move the country towards a gas-based economy. Referring to various initiatives taken by the Centre recently, like developing national gas grid to cover all corners of the country and promotional campaign being undertaken to communicate benefits of natural gas, he said that IGL is fully geared up to seize emerging opportunities in the CGD sector.
Highlighting the initiatives taken by IGL to promote the usage of clean fuels due to increasing environmental concerns, Ravindran shared information about the first-of-its-kind pilot project in the country to run two wheelers on CNG being undertaken by the company.
He also spoke about augmentation of CNG infrastructure undertaken by IGL, wherein 16 new CNG stations had been made operational in 2015-16, and work had also started on another 78
CNG stations which were subsequently made operational in the first quarter of 2016-17. Ravindran added that this had resulted in IGL recording highest ever sale of Rs 29.5 lakh per day last month, which is the highest for any CGD company in a single day.
