The denizens of Visakhapatnam can soon avail gas pipeline services. Reportedly, the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) has taken up the project with a whopping budget of about Rs.1000 crores.
As per a report by Andhrajyothi, the project will be executed in two stages. While the pipeline works between Visakhapatnam and Kakinada will be done in the first stage, the works between Visakhapatnam and Srikakulam will be worked upon in the later stage.
Reportedly, the length of the entire pipeline will be 210 Kms. About 252 approvals need to be acquired for this project to begin. There will be still 24 approvals in the further stages that need approval. Currently, the pipeline works between Visakhapatnam and Kakinada are under progress.
R Chadha, Executive Director GAIL, while speaking to the media informed that the gas pipeline works in Visakhapatnam will be completed by May and the services are expected to begin by June.
Why You Need It
- It is way safer than using a regular LPG gas connection.
- It is also easily affordable and cheaper as compared to an LPG connection.
- The gas will reach your home just like a water pipeline and you don’t have to book it and wait for it to get delivered.
Even though this project was proposed seven years ago initially, a few delays in the approvals played the spoilsport, dragging the project’s initiation, as informed by a few sources from GAIL.
