On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay a foundation for City Gas Distribution (CGD) projects across 129 districts. The Petroleum Ministry said, this project won under the ninth CGD bidding round that was held recently. A ministry release said that each of the Geographical areas across 19 states in India, the authorized groups would hold their event locally.

The projects awarded recently by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) would cover around 65 Geographical Areas (GA) to bring gas to half of the country’s population in 26 states and Union Territories.

One of the statements also mentioned that during the event, PM Modi will launch the tenth CGD bidding round in 50 Gas that are spread over 124 districts in 14 states.

To shift the environment to a friendlier gas-based economy, the development of CGD networks will increase the availability of clean cooking or Piped Natural Gas (PNG). For transportation fuel, consumers may use compressed natural gas (CNG).

So far, this project has covered 46.5 lakh households and 96 cities and districts. 32 lakh CNG vehicles are also covered in the same project. PNGRB launched CGD bidding round in April for covering 174 districts in 22 states and UTs.

According to our sources, it is reported that around 2 crore PNG and 4,600 CNG stations are expected to be installed in the next eight years based on the commitment made in the bidding round by different entities. This has expanded the coverage to about 50 percent of the country’s population and 35 percent of India’s area.

PNGRB has initiated to cover 124 districts and 14 states that increases the coverage to 53 percent of the country’s area and 70 percent of the population.

According to the government, CNG is 60 percent cheaper when compared to petrol and 45 percent when compared to diesel. PNG is 40 percent cheaper than LPG that is used for cooking.
