Centre inaugurates CGD network at Ekta Nagar, Gujarat

In a notable development, Union government has inaugurated city gas distribution (CGD) network to provide domestic piped natural gas (PNG) at Ekta Nagar in the state of Gujarat. Gujarat Gas Limited has laid the CGD infrastructure in Ekta Nagar in the state to provide PNG to households in order to reduce dependency on conventional fuel sources and assisting environmental sustainability. Besides, Gujarat Gas has increased the price of industrial gas by Rs 2.3 per standard cubic meter (scm) effective from November 1, 2023. The revised gas price stands at Rs 45.6 per scm. The increase in gas price is a result of hike in spot liquefied natural gas (LNG) price. Gujarat Gas is one of India’s largest CGD companies operating in 44 districts in 6 states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh and Union territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli.
