Ananth Kumar, union minister for parliamentary affairs and chemicals & fertilizers, inaugurated the Bengaluru City Gas Distribution (CGD) project to supply eco-friendly natural gas to households, industries and the transport sector. 
 
The CGD project is being implemented by GAIL Gas Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Maharatna company GAIL (India) Limited, at an investment of Rs 6,283 crore. It will cover 4,395 sq km in urban and rural Bengaluru, broadly covering eight sectors - Nelamangala, Dod Ballapur, Devanahalli, Hosakote, Bengaluru East, Bengaluru North, Bengaluru South and Anekal.
 
The project will provide economical, environment-friendly, uninterrupted, safe and convenient energy to 106.12 lakh residents of Bengaluru by supplying piped natural gas (PNG) to households, industries and commercial units. This will significantly add to people’s convenience as there will be no hassles of booking, advance payment, storage, handling of heavy weight cylinders and monitoring of cylinder delivery. Billing will be done once in two months based on consumption. Moreover, with the setting up of 60 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stations, the project will provide cheaper fuel for the transport sector and also facilitate a healthy lifestyle by creating a pollution-free environment.
