A natural gas pipeline of GAIL (India) Limited was recently damaged due to unauthorised digging work at Vadodara, leading to gas leakage. GAIL said that the leakage was quickly stopped and there were no casualties or damage to the property. 

 
The Maharatna enterprise said the leakage was reported near gate no. 10 of Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals Limited and initial reports suggest that it was caused by unauthorised digging work being carried out by another agency. 
 
GAIL pressed quick response teams into service and the situation was brought under control. The area was cordoned off. 
 
The damaged pipeline is being repaired. During the period of repair, supply of natural gas to affected customers was lined up through alternate source to maintain an uninterrupted supply of the gas.
