Bangalore, Mar 22: Now the Bangaloreans don't have to wait for the delivery of the LPG cylinder, Karnataka government has decided in the state budget to supply piped gas to the common man directly in their homes through a city gas distribution (piped) network. The provision will be available in this fiscal year.

While presenting the state budget, Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda said that the Gas Authority of Indian Limited (GAIL) will complete Rs 5,000-crore project of laying the 1,413-km of a natural gas pipeline from Dabhol (in Ratnagiri, Maharashtra) to Bangalore in this fiscal year.

Besides city gas distribution networks as well as distributed power generation projects, the GAIL has to set up a natural gas infrastructure in industrial estates and clusters for the distribution of natural gas pipeline all across the state.
