The city piped gas project, which had been delayed for some time, has picked up the pace with Indian Oil-Adani Gas Pvt Ltd (IOAGPL) extending the project to other Municipalities, including Eloor, Thrikkakara, Tripunithura and Maradu.
The project, kickstarted in Kalamassery Municipality, was stalled over the issue of road-digging with the civic body.According to a source with the IOAGPL, registration forms had been distributed in over 60,000 households, including those in Kochi Corporation. “Over 20,000 households had responded seeking piped gas. Our plan is to provide PNG to at least 8,500 households in the next six months,” he said.
IOAGPL has undertaken road-digging work in all five municipalities. “Our men have started the laying the pipeline. We have reached a consensus with the authorities of all these civic bodies.
