Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) has won a licence to retail CNG to automobiles and piped cooking gas to households in Hapur district in Uttar Pradesh, officials said. The government had in June 2010 given IGL a city gas distribution licence for UP’s Ghaziabad district. Hapur was at that time part of Ghaziabad district.
But a year later, Mayawati-led government in the state carved out Hapur as a new district. Since then, IGL had to confine its work to Ghaziabad district only.
Officials said the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has now decided to give IGL the licence for Hapur as well. “The decision has been taken and it will be out soon,” a senior PNGRB official said.
Hapur is the smallest district of UP and is 60 kilometers from New Delhi. It comprises three tehsils – Hapur, Garhmukteshwar and Dhaulana – and IGL will begin work soon after a formal order is issued. Read More
